Yes, you're right. For, say, a 3 x 5 design, one can do this in as few as 7 runs -- but only in general by some version of one-factor-at-a-time (OFAT) designs, which are inefficient. It is easy, via, say model.matrix() to write a general function to produce these. But I think it's a bad idea; more efiicient algorithmic designs are better, IMO, which is why I suggested AlgDesign. You and others are free to disagree, of course.
