--- Comment #3 from rainer <carnendil at gmail.com> ---
The example originally attached was created only to show the noted behaviour.

As you say, LO seems to be restricted to "basic" (single) rows and columns.

Having to plot data sets that "wrap" over more than one row or column is maybe
not as exotic, though. I remember having done so on MS Excel over 20 years ago
(for my grad thesis).

I have seen many other instances (e.g., accounting or budgeting) in which a
data set may be separated in several tables (different sheets or not, depending
on the user/company presentation/printing needs), but plots needed both for
individual table data and for the whole lot.

It wouldn't make sense to duplicate and re-arrange the data only for one plot.
I do not have one of those with me now but I'll try to get my hands on a
real-life example to see if I can share it.
