The trimmed rows well fit the formulae (including the general formula)
and are consistent with the "extra" initial terms present in the
columns sequences.
E.g., instead of "Column 1 is A000079(n+2)" it could have been simply
said that "Column 1 is A000079" etc.

Furthermore, I would also add the 0th column (corresponding to k=0) of
all 1's. It is also well consistent with the formulae and other row
sequences present in the OEIS.
