it appears that odf specification lacks a native way of performing such a  
trick. however, i invented the following procedure involving creation of  
two files which should be subsequently printed on the same set of paper  
sheets. the first file has wide top and bottom margins so that the  
available area be quite where you need your table to reside. this file  
would contain your table with "repeat header" and "allow row to break  
between pages and columns" properties checked. the second file would  
contain all other text you need in your document while the whitespace for  
the table is preserved by inserting an empty frame on the table's place.  
for the frame to appear on each page automatically, it should be anchored  
to a paragraph inside the page header/footer while being positioned  
relative to the entire page. of course you can merge both files together  
if you create an appropriate set of page styles.
