One possibility is to use ellipsis notation from Presentations.
iTable[f[x], {x, 1, 3, , 99}]
{f[1],f[3],\[CenterEllipsis],f[99]}
Generalizing the second case somewhat:
iTable[f[Subscript[x, i]], {i, 1, 2, , n}, tag1]
% // iTableNormalize[tag1, {Subscript[x, i], {3, 1, 100, Sin[2]}}]
{f[Subscript[x, 1]],f[Subscript[x, 2]],\[CenterEllipsis],f[Subscript[x, n]]}
{f[3], f[1], f[100], f[Sin[2]]}
Ellipsis expressions are common mathematical notations and mathematicians
are pretty quick to spot the patterns. But they certainly aren't a universal
solution.
By the way, T-Rex had a brain both in his head, and a smaller brain in his
tail. He was thus able to reason both a priori and a posteriori.

Or,
worse, Table[f[x], {x, {1,2,3,4,5}}]? Whatever solution is chosen, the
point is that it is no longer "intuitive", at least not in the sense
that one could readily guess what it should look like.
