Charts from Reusable Tables

I want to create multiple Gantt charts by combining different subsets of tables in different ways. I don't want to have to repeat myself by defining the data in the tables twice: I want a solution where I define the tables once, and then use inclusion macros to bring them into different charts. A simple example, suppose I have TrackA and TrackB on a project. I would want a chart for TrackA, for TrackB and for both tracks combined. But I only want to define the data for the tracks once. So two tables in total, but three charts. 

I thought I could do this with page include or excerpt include, but frustratingly this doesn't work. Maddeningly the charts render fine when they are being previewed and the page is in edit mode. But once the page is published, the chart simply does not display.

I thought this approach would work based on research I did looking at this answer: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/Can-the-Confluence-Chart-Macro-get-data-from-another-source-e-g/qaq-p/211826.

 

This page also seemed to suggest that including tables via excerpts would work: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/How-to-refer-to-the-data-on-chart-table-on-another-confluence/qaq-p/1002134.

 

Anybody got a workaround, or is there a feature request for this?
