I've built dozens of kitchen, and other, cabinet sets using the RT. And, use the RT on almost every other project, also. I've never found a need for tracks. Sleds guided by the fence work beautifully for cope and stick work and there are a myriad of ways to use feather boards without needing tracks in the table.

Miter track(slot) or t track? In my opinion, and that is what this is, my opinion, you don't need either. The bit is round... It will cut from any direction. T track and miter slots limit you as to where you can put your fence. Having said that, it's entirely personal preference as to whether or not you install/use them. I prefer using a sled of some form for those times you need to position your work "just so" in relation to the fence.
