Does is make sense to build a accessorie table and fence for a benchtop motiser. Like my miter saw I think I want to have my Mortiser built into a bench table. The bench fence would meet the mortisers fence when in the full back position. Can anyone thing of some reason against this?

I wouldn’t talk you out of it if that’s what you think is needed. Depends on how much mortising you expect to do, and whether the pieces you’re cutting mortises in are so long that you need permanent auxiliary tables (e.g if you’re mortising bed frame members that can be several feet long).
If most of you’re mortising is chair/table legs, aprons, etc. you probably are better off spending time building other more useful jigs and fixtures.
That being said, I think it’s a good idea to mount the mortiser to the table top for stability.
