Agree with Walker – fence tracks should run right to the back side of the table to allow mount/dismount of the fence. Build brackets into the back of the router table to hold the fence below the table height – I often end up using the router table without any fence for routing edges on large panels.

The T-track running parallel to the fence should extend to both sides of the router table – you want to be able to insert T-screws to hold featherboards and fixtures from either side of the table. Mine is about 6” from center-line of the bit but that fits the featherboards I have – your mileage may vary.

Need I mention that the track running parallel to the fence should be wide enough to allow the use of a miter gauge?
