I have both- a shaper, and a router table which is mounted in the right wing of my TS. I see them as two different machines. I only use my router table for light duty work like rounding over corners and such. The shaper is my go to machine for raised panel doors and heavier work.

The biggest issue with having the router table mounted in the TS extension (or outfeed table) is that it gets in the way of using the TS. Having separate machines helps by not having to break down machine setups to make a quick cut on the TS.
