Not with Delete or Backspace but I've never seen that it was possible to delete a table that way. A few clicks inside the table removes it.
This is a usability issue. It natural to every user to use DEL and BACKSPACE to delete things. This is the way almost all HTML editor work, like Dreamweaver, Visual Studio, Word, etc... The IE implementation of designMode works in that way too. I've noticed that it is possible to delete the table if you go deleting one column or row each time... but it is not so obvious, and could be a real trouble if you have large tables. Anyway... it should just be intuitive to the user, without having to guess the way to do that.
I did already confirmed an older bug in core->editor, so dupping this one. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 236106 ***
