I would expect a <figure> to be able to contain a <table> instead of an image.
They may be labeled differently, but in scientific literature tables are
presented in exactly the same way as graphics; both will be numbered, both may
have a long explanatory caption, etc. It is overkill to require two entirely
different markup structures in order to represent the same structure with one
case applying to graphics and the other to tables when the two cases are easily
distinguished based on the actual content.
