[Rd] Inconsistency in as.data.frame.table for stringsAsFactors

I noticed that in as.data.frame.table, the stringsAsFactors argument defaults to TRUE, whereas in the other as.data.frame methods, it defaults to default.stringsAsFactors().

The documentation and implementation agree on this, so this is not a bug.

However, I was wondering if this disparity was intended or if it might be some sort of unintentional oversight. If it is intentional, I wonder what the rationale is.

Thanks,
