Ram Concept TR43 EC2 tensile limit for frequent service load combination

May I know why for Frequent service load combination, tensile stress is checked using Table 5? 

From my understanding, Table 4 should be used when strip is full panel width and Table 5 is used when strip is design strip width as stated in TR43. Regardless of load combination used, stress limits should be based on the strip width considered.

There is a workaround where u can change the load factor to 0.7 in Characteristic service load combo but I am curious on why is the code was implemented as such.

Thank you.
