Adjusting groove width with table saw misalignment...?

Hi, another weird question...
...well I was wondering how important is misalignment in a table saw. Lets suppose the saw axis is not perfectly perpendicular to the ripping fence. If you guide with the fence anyway you will get a cut perfectly parallel to the fence. The saw misalignment will only cause that the cut will be wider than the saw width. Even it could be useful for grooving, just you can adjust the groove width... Am I right?
Thanks in advance

WRONG!
Alignment is VERY important.
Burning of the wood, blade warp or distortion, binding etc. are all caused by misalignment. Get it as close as possible.

Although it is strongly recommended to have the blade parallel to the fence, technically you are correct. In fact, by skewing the fence it is possible to cut coves and make raised panels using the table saw. Here's a link to an article showing how to make a raised panel.
