I'd like to avoid custom code if possible for a situation where I want to show an SVG in a list view that folds two numbers together: a percent complete and a number of days. That is the second of these columns, where the permutation of percentages and days is so high that the SVG really needs creating on the fly:

The Custom Data Type mechanism of lightning-datatable lets me do that if I write my own table LWC because a column type can be mapped to a component that renders the column cells.

But before I resort to such custom code, I would like to confirm that there is no way to e.g. introduce a field in the data model that can surface such an SVG. And that there is no other strategy to achieve this.

No, there's no way to show anything more than the built-in icons, which are SVGs by default, but nothing as advanced as what you're looking to do. You'll need a custom data table implementation.
