Labels with embedded tables

I've asked Tech support and cruised the Ideas, and it doesn't seem there is any good way to create labels with internal linework, except to create the label in an external program (i.e. MS Excel) and import it as an object or picture...

Surely there must be a way to do this better? Maybe through annotation?

Mapping Center Answer:

Tech Support did not steer you wrong -- there is currently no way to do this with the core software. We have seen this request before, so we are looking at approaches for handling this. But in the meantime, I strongly encourage you to submit this on our ArcGIS Ideas page, or vote to support it if someone else has already published this -- that way it will receive higher priority.
