IMHO, modifying it buffer-locally is not the right way. Either the
author wants table captions above tables, or not. So the author wants
it in /one/ way, and not in different ways, depending on the document
class or if caption.sty is loaded or not.

IMHO, one could add table and table* to LaTeX-top-caption-list --
table captions above with too little spacing are still better than
table captions below, but that's my opinion. AUCTeX is too
`bug-compatible' to LaTeX here, IMO. It would be nice, of course, if
AUCTeX informed the user that there is a little beauty flaw that he
should correct, but the real problem is a LaTeX problem, not an AUCTeX
