That's the way I do it.
This is also a good way for a preset management to save an entire patch with
different settings. Takes a little organisation at first but works

Yeah, I think the way to work around this is what I used:
[tabwrite keymap]
[table keymap]
plus a couple messages:
) ; keymap write keymap.txt]

) ; keymap read keymap.txt]
& a [loadbang] to this last message should automatically reload the last
saved values.

THe table object can't save any of its contents.  It's a mistake that the
dialog box suggests that that would be possible.  (Ordinary "arrays" do
allow this.  Also, a new "array define" object does - this was introduced in
Pd 0.45 which as far as I know is only available as "vanilla".  (Pd extended
is based on a 2-year-old version of Pd.)
