Paste from Word fails with table from Excel

Pasting a table either directly from Excel, or via Word results in lost formatting.
Attached is an example table in Excel (2013) (Table Test.xlsx). If I copy this, you can see the html stored in the clipboard in the "Excel Clipboard Contents.txt" (found using Notepad++).
If I paste directly from Excel into the Demo (http://ckeditor.com/demo#full) I see a table with no formatting at all. See "Paste from Excel.png" and "Paste from Excel Source.txt" for the output provided by the "Source" link in the demo.
If I paste directly from Excel using the "Paste from Word" plugin, no formatting is carried into the popup. See "Paste From Excel PFW PopUp.png". The output is identical to pasting directly from Excel (without using the PFW button/plugin).
If I copy the table from Excel, paste it into Word, then copy the table from Word (see "Test Table.docx") I get the following behaviour. See "Word Clipboard Contents.txt" for what was on the clipboard:
Pasting from Word directly into the editor gives a table that has retained the 'bold' headings from the table, but no other styles. See "Paste From Word Source.txt" and "Paste From Word.png".
Pasting from Word into the PFW plugin gives the correct table in the PFW plugin pop-up (see "Paste From Word PFW PopUp") but the same result as if the table was pasted not using the plugin.
I've seen the same results locally. These tests were run with Office 2013, Windows 8.1 and Firefox 29.0.1.
