There's a whole body of work on a slider that takes a bit of figuring out - in the sort of territory mentioned.
I have an 8ft Hammer K3, and still am still getting into it - but so far it seems to need clamps (the air clamps look nice, but manual clamps work fine too), parallel bars, a side table, and a separate mitre gauge with a short fence so that it's not necessary to disturb the main fence too often. The table is quite large, so it's not come up yet - but there's also the question of how best to set up out feed tables and the like.
Even when you have the hardware there's all sorts of little working techniques to be figured out. The edge of the slider is a great reference for getting pieces lined up off, and you can often use a simple tool like a combo square to do this - but there's scenarios too where various sorts of fixturing, measuring and set up tools can be useful. Some stuff on how others make certain sorts of cuts would be great.
So +1 that a comprehensive book/manual of slider use and techniques would be very useful. Maybe even somebody specialising in the supply of accessories for slider saws. 'The Slider Shop' anybody?
It's not the easiest to search, but the Felder Owner's Group site on Yahoo does link and contain some photos and posts on these topics - although it tends to come in widely distributed snippets in response to specific 'how to' questions..
