Why don't you just use the ophcrack program with those tables instead? Due to the way rainbow tables work I really don't see much of a reason to include them in JtR since they wouldn't benefit from any of JtR's strengths, aka the ability to target multiple hash types, perform dictionary and Markov based brute force attacks, etc. I'm not saying rainbow tables aren't useful, they most certainly are. All I'm saying it that it probably is better to use a dedicated program like ophcrack, or rcrack to generate new rainbow tables, and perform lookups against RTs when performing a password cracking attack.
