If a vendor is conforming to the standard and the standard says data for 
a chart is in a table in the <chart:chart> element or in a <table:table> 
element in the containing document (since a chart is a document in its 
own right) that is addressed with a table:cell-address-range attribute, 
where else do you think a vendor is going to store the data and claim 
conformance to ODF 1.2?

All chart data is stored in table. (full stop) How it is addressed, 
either as a table within the chart document or as a range of cells in a 
table in the containing document is the only difference.

What language would you suggest if the something along the foregoing 
lines is insufficient?

Hope you are having a great day!
