It's a good question Harry, here's my take on it.
How many woodworkers own just one router? I'm just a home shop hobbyist and I have 4 routers. Why tie up a plunge router in a router table when you can just bolt a fixed base like the PC 7518? This keeps the plunge router handy for workbench use, which is what I do along with my D handle router.
Not to mention the better lifts like Woodpeckers, JessEm, etc have a much finer adjustment than you typically get on a plunge router.
