If you are using a plunging motion to nibble the waste out instead of pushing the router, I think you are ok leaving just 1/2” in the collet, you could even clean up with a chisel. Is the router used on the jig with the pheonolic base on? Could you gain a couple of mm by taking the router base off? (Plunge router I’m thinking off).
Can you use your mortise jig to get as much depth as possible, take router off and then go deeper using the fence for alignment/take more out with mortiser? What width mortise are we talking here and are you using a 1/4” router?
How many mortises, if it’s only 1 chair could you do it by hand? What about shallower mortises but pinning/fox wedging the tenon.
