Let’s use some standard terminology.

When I referred to a tenon, I was referring to “inching up” on the shoulder cut, the “length” of the tenon. The first cut would be at the “end” of the board and subsequent cuts would move toward the final position of the shoulder cut (which I guess you refer to as “inner”).

However, I encourage you to think about the rabbet as a better example to consider to answer the original question “why use a sacrificial fence”. Although I DO use the technique for “inching up” on the tenons, my motivations are not what you might think (confusing in this context; send me a private message if you wish to pursue application of the technique to tenons).
