    So instead of enhancing a spreadsheet format I’d rather have a

    together. Changing a formula triggers change in the results. (The
    workbooks I’ve seen don’t do that.) Input data and intermediate
    results can be hidden or expanded via mouse click. Results can be
    traced back through the workbook’s formulae up to the input data.

Olaf, have you looked at Jupyter <http://jupyter.org/> at all? This now
has a backend for Haskell and supports many of the things you mention.
