Quick question for ODF experts

I must be reading this wrong, but in the ODF spec for tables it says the following:

"This chapter describes the table structure that is used for tables that are embedded within text documents and for spreadsheets."

Could it really be the case that ODF doesn't allow tables in presentations? I know that OpenOffice's presentation application "Impress" doesn't allow for native tables, but I had assumed the ODF format wouldn't have the same restrictions as OpenOffice.

Could someone more familiar with ODF help clear this up for me?
