The problem with doing that on a saw is that there usually isn't enough fence in front of the blade so that will always be the limitation since the points on the concave side have to maintain contact with the fence the whole cut.

I drilled my excaliber fence so I could bolt a longer face to it that extends it about a foot on either end so that gives me a little extra length for straightening. I've seen a few members with the Biesemeyer fence build a box sextion that fits over it.
The box fence is a good idea, I use one on the table saw to increase the height of the fence so I can just slide it on and off as needed, also to fit tight down to the table for thin material.
never thought of making a longer one tho, thanks for the idea.

That would solve the fixed depth part. My only concern would be the saw marks. one would have to use a good saw blade that leaves a smooth finish, I have a Freud that would work. But it would be a way to get a straight edge, in multiple passes.
