+1 for the use of chart instead of graph (for ambiguity with Graph 
Theory [1]) and instead of plot, since I think the word plot is used 
when a math expression is involved (function, inequality, etc.) and 
kqmlgraphplugin is more suitable when one needs to render results from 
statistical/financial analysis.
