That's what I am about to do.

I see at least 3 reasons for this:

1. This requires Yasnippet, not known by everybody.
2. Yasnippet doesn't provide templates for tabulars: the user has to
   create its own snippets by himself and, considering the elisp code
   I posted, that's not such an easy task (I wouldn't be able to do it
   by myself).
3. AUCTeX /does provide/ a (rather simple) template for tabulars:
  │ C-c C-e + tabu + TAB + RET + RET + llll + RET
  │ \begin{tabular}{llll}
  │   |&&&
  │ \end{tabular}
   `|' standing for the cursor position.
