This is a good idea. 

It shows cells with zeros and ones identically, which may well be a feature for Percy. 
Similarly the threshold is easy to tune. 

What I meant by not trivial was that inserting other characters in the table would be difficult, but Austin is clearly right that blanking out cells is more straightforward.

Is the kind of thing that is wanted?

sysuse auto, clear
gen edu=round(mpg,5)
ren rep78 sex
table sex edu
egen ct=count(sex), by(sex edu)
table sex edu if ct>1
