I disagree here, the collapsed sections make sense when many conditions are used. Also, the request without a clear use case like "Benjamin wants to do <Foo> to achieve <Bar>, but is blocked by <Quz>" makes the request sounds like a nice to have for just aesthetical purpose.

Of course it need when we have several conditions for one range. When I have only one condition, it shows fully always.

Who is Benjamin?
 
Heiko, did you use conditional formatting yourself? When I have several conditions for one range I have a problem, because I can't see all conditions in one time together. I should remember what's options I set for each condition. And I should switch between conditions to set all conditions right, include ranges of values, colors, sets of icon, styles of cell, etc.

I want offer you discuss it on design meeting.

That's a use case. Alternatively to drop expandability we could add information on the collapsed section, introduce user labels, have a summary in tooltips... etc.

I like the suggestion for the use case in the mockup. Clearly.
I do not expect that so many conditions are applied on one range, that the expanded views will give less overview of the full list :)

a +1 for me

We discussed the topic in the design session. The idea with user-defined strings likely fails due to missing ODF specification. So we recommend to have the section likewise a normal tree (whether plus/minus or triangle to expand/collapse) inclusive an additional expand/collapse all control.
