I would definitely expect to see a table in a footnote on a corporate
financial statement.  In fact, I think the standardized accounting
practices in some countries may actually *require* tables in footnotes in
some corporate financial statements.  I suppose it's possible that the
"notes" on the average financial statement might technically be classified
as endnotes rather than footnotes, since there are typically stretches of
multiple pages containing nothing but "notes" without any "main text" on
the page.  But it seems quite reasonable to me that that kind of
context could require tables in footnotes as such.
