Many European woodworkers think dado stacks are completely dangerous, and they are not allowed anyway as the blade guard must be removed for use. Those operations are done on other machines.
They tend to have a lot more government rules. It seems the saws sold there have only a short arbor, for ones own good.
Ripping rough sawed wood on a table saw, seems a little bit of a hazard to me, perhaps more so on short lengths.
Matt made some good points above, I am glad he posted that.
