Default table philosophies?

I went looking throughout all of the suppliers and various philosophies surrounding router tables and I've come up with two basic forms, Rob Rosendahl's and the other I'll call the "Norm Abraham" for lack of a better handle. Does anyone have any suggestions for other table/fence methods?

Yeah the Sommerfeld Pivoting Fence style and I guess now with no router plate. Even when he sold his CMT stuff with a plate he always had an option of no plate. Marc always talked about how he did not like the plate and prefered the router table be set up more like a shaper.

The pivoting fence is still my favorite type of fence. Of course it can also be used in the traditional manner.

Hi Nick: Is the pivoting fence different from the one in the Sommerfeldtools.com website pp. 6? It looks identical to the Norm Abraham's type except that the fixing points are at the edge of the table but they remain in tracks like Norm's. Am I missing something?
