Comment (by mrwweb):

 I believe this fix has regressed in at least some browsers. See also:

 In WP 4.4.2, Windows 10 (and a client has reported same issue in Win 7),
 Chrome (48.0.X), Excel 2007 the table formatting is completely removed
 when pasting directly into the editor from Excel with Paste as Plain Text
 turned off.

 The expected behavior—relatively clean HTML table code—is correctly pasted
 when using Firefox (44.0.2). The same data also correctly pasted when
 copied from Google Sheets in Chrome.
