That s a new one to me… all table saws that I know of can take a thin kerf blade. The G1023 you mention even has this to say in the manual:

Can you point to where a manufacturer warns about think kerf blades?

required blade kerf rhickness 0.122

as for your note about 0771 I already mentioned that it does take thin kerf.

And here is a letter from Grizzly I received on my question:
———
The G0715P Hybrid Table Saw does not include a thin kerf riving knife or blade guard with splitter, nor are either offered in thin kerf. We do not recommend the use of thin kerf blades on this saw as the safety equipment could not be used with it.

Even Delta sold at Lowes does not like thin kerf
