You have misunderstood what "data" means in that definition.  To
realize why you misunderstood, consider this: a program can include
"data" like the number 5.0e-10, but that doesn't make such a number
any kind of software.  Conclusion: not every kind of "data" can be
considered to be so central to a program as to be an integral part of
'software".  A judgment call is needed.

It doesn't.
