Seems to me that ripping without the rip fence is what would be troubling for me. If when ripping without a rip fence the work piece shifts left or right or gets out of alignment with the blade it can pinch the blade and start to kick back, that would be when things could get uneasy. I would say there are times myself, along with many others might rip wood and have our fingers a bit closer to the blade than should be. In our shop we cut ourselves some simple push blocks from wood so there really is no reason to get the fingers too close to the blade with scrap push blocks near by.
