I'd put it another way: -impute- uses regression
for imputation, which is almost certain to be
inappropriate for categorical variables.
Perhaps there is a small issue of nomenclature
here, in that the name -impute- and the
summary "impute data for missing values" might
create the impression of a general command
covering all missing value problems. -impute-
is pretty general, but not that general.
Perhaps the manual entry [R] impute could
be tweaked a little to make this clearer.
