Yes, it would be a problem with a miter slot. Sommerfields uses that type of fence at the Woodworking Shows. If you think about it, it works perfectly well, as all you are doing is moving the fence closer or further away from the bit. And since the bit is round and spins in a circle, moving only one end of the fence makes no difference. I don't use a miter slot or a pivoting fence, but that's just me. Jim.
