I've added some hooks that allow other modules to alter commerce_price_table's schema and pre-process the price table item list before validating and formatting. I use this to remove max_qty (since this change won't make it into the core ;-) and add some additional fields to each entry. A .api.php file to describe the hooks is included. I don't think that these changes would have any side effects on existing installations.
