CMS = COMPOUND MITER SAW , versus just a plain old “chop saw”
Big difference, and then again versus a table saw , I don’t think I would want to be setting up compound miters on the table saw very often , if at all. Different tool , different uses : )
I always rough cut my wood to length on my CMS because I don’t own a Radial Arm Saw , and don’t want to use a hand saw. The sled you’re asking about is a whole different animal and is used for precision work / smaller pieces.

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
