SawStop technology will not prevent kickback, which is probably encountered more often than run-ins with the blade. That s what a riving knife is for. And yes, I m aware that SS has a riving knife.

You are correct but kickback is one of the leading ways that a hand gets sucked into the blade so, besides the riving knife, it does have added protection for kickback.
