I agree with you that the resulting table would be unusable except if  
it was on two facing pages only, which I'm not sure it will be. So  
I've decided to change a series of about 8 columns that would only  
contain check-marks into a single columns that will contain a few  
words each time. This way, I should be able to rotate the table into  
landscape mode and have enough space. It will still fit on more than  
one page in height, but I should be able to handle this.

Thanks for your comment.
