As we play Slovak Championship this year with rules. Table is edges which disallows to enlarge features and it not possible to move tiles on table to make more space there. It was just limit to speed up game due to limit 30 min per match.

Did anyone reach the edge of the table and have problems to complete a feature? If so, did you have any rules for open feature edges at the edge of the table?

Nope. We have two times expandable table  which can be expanded without removing things from table.
From original size 160x90 cm to 210x90 and then again to 260x90.
Only issue is if game reach no extendable size 90cm.
There we uses another magic trick. On table we have nice tablecloth. So if game reach on of edge we usually move whole board by moving table cloth.
It happened only once that game reach both edges on 90cm size.
So this was very BIG problem without any precedent.
So we used to place tiles which continue but preca it on stack like first tile in stack was original like on deck. Second tile is first tile "levitating" next to first, etc.
Very big mess.
This create new precedent and we used it sometimes when everybody at lazy and nobody wanted to move tablecloth or expand table.
 sometimes without moving

We all know that any rule ambiguity should only ever be resolved with a fight to the death. It's the only civil way to manage situations like these.

The UK Championships that Dan described is another example of how the UK manages to do the exact opposite to the rest of the world when it comes to running tournaments.

I've talked about it with Georg Wild from HiG some years ago. And in the CAR you can find the table edge story. We also thought of what happens if the players like to play the game on the floor. Does the edge of the floor ends under the sofa or under the bookshelf?

Yes, we are aware of that:
https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Base_game#Use_of_a_table

I sent this question to HiG after a controversial situation Dan had in a championsip. So I wanted to know if there was any update on this matter, since he was not allowed to extend the playing area because of the other player.

At the endgame of the World Championship they expand the playing area with a 2n or 3rd table, because the tiles are very large (around 8 or 10 cm).

In this case Dan was playing with a normal base game and they reached the border of the table. He can tell you the context first hand... But the resolution wasn't too amicable as far as I recall.
