An a-pawling infeed ripping question???

Pawls are useful after the cut on a table saw.
Would adding another set of pawls on the infeed side of the blade be of any use to prevent kickback?

No, the kicking is done by the back part of the blade. Eliminate it by using a splitter, proper technique, and standing to the side just in case it happens anyway.
You use a push block/stick too, right? And never use the miter with wood against the fence.
