How Do I?  - 
 
I'm trying to create a plugin that allows the user:
1. to attach a .csv as an asset to an entry
2. convert that .csv to html (this will be handled outside of craft via an API)
3. Insert that returned HTML data into a Rich Text field

I've read in past posts that "It is not possible for a plugin to add new properties to EntryModel, and it probably won’t ever be."  Would this idea fall into this category? Or do I have the ability to update/save entry specific data?

Any Advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Each entry contains a 'technical details' section that consists of a data table. This plugin would allow the user the create and update their data tables in a program like excel and then upload them into the craft system. It's basically a way to avoid entering data into a table through the WYSIWYG. Also, the number of table columns are not consistent across  the entries so I can't use the 'table' field.
