I think that would be the best approach.

The table contains a bivariate probability distribution, which I need to
reproduce at multiple locations in a document, and from which I need to
calculate a few things (which is why I need to pass the data part to

This is part of a process of fixing an old Org file which no longer
exports into LaTeX PDF. In some earlier version of Org the following
used to work:

  #+name: my-table
  | row 1 |     1 |     2 |
  | row 2 |     3 |     4 |
  |       | col 1 | col 2 |

  #+call: my-table() :hlines yes

That is, in the past the table name used to sort of define a function
which could then be called to reproduce the table. But this produced
errors in the current version, so I started to figure out ways to
achieve the same end result.
