Add a table description for preprocessing models such as discretize

It would be good to add a table describing the actions of the preprocessing model generated by the discretization operators. 


When a discretization model is created and then stored in the repository it is not obvious what transformation the model will perform on data.  Only the attributes that are affected. 


May I suggest something like this?

attribute value min max
att_1 range1 -Infinity 12
att_1 range2 13 Infinity
att_2 range1 -Infinity 24
att_1 range2 25 Infinity


It would really help for making the preprocessing model more portable and easy to extract into reports explainable to the wider business.

(Current workaround is aggregate results of the discretization column, but it's clunky).
