I think a half fence for cross cuts is a good idea (think Delta's UniFence that has the ability to slide backwards), but a half fence for ripping? What happens when your wood gets past the half way point and suddenly dives to the right because there's nothing to support it? There's a possibility that your piece would then ride up on the blade. You want a solid fence to support your piece all the way through a rip cut.
That's my opinion only - others may chime in and tell me I'm all washed up.

Some folks call me Vince - other folks call me...........
