I also experienced the impossibility to fill \caption argument, but
never dug into it because it occurred to me few times (indeed I use
few tables) and never thought it was actually tied to the to the
environment it was in!  I installed your patch, good catch!

I completely agree with your reasoning.  In addition, (La)TeXnically
"figure" and "table" environments are defined in the same exact way,
only the name of the counter set in them is different, so also AUCTeX
should treat them in the same way.

That's what most people do as well, I think.
