I don't think I've ever seen a table that wasn't 6 judges, but have been at tables that had less than six samples per catagory.
Tim, it's good to ask questions, and remember other than the printed rule it is best to write down a question and personnaly ask the KCBS rep in charge at any given contest. Not that you won't get a correct answer here but the only true answer every time is from the rep.
Good luck in your judging this summer and thanks for stepping up and volenteering.
