calc forces the user to click on one of the column/line cells to move it after selection, when the natural thing would be to drag the column/line button used to select it
Sounds plausible at first sight. But I doubt that that will be modified because drag and drop Heading "B" behind "C" would let user expect that new order would be ACBD...
is there and Spreadsheet program doing it the way you request? Gnumeric does not.
That's how excel works for example and excel users have no such expectation as you describe:
1. they want to move column/lines
2. everywhere else in the office suite you can move items by selecting them, keeping the mouse button pressed, and dragging somewhere else
3. the column/line selection point is its heading
So having to switch selection point to start dragging is completely unatural and non-obvious
See how confusing the current UI is there:
