Not being very knowledgeable about table saws, but I doubt that they 
are stressed for a "sideways" force.  I would imagine that the bearings 
and such are designed for high speed spinning, and forces applied at 
a right angle to the shaft.  Putting a sanding disk on instead of a blade 
would cause the forces to be in line with the shaft, and it might just not 
work very well.

Then again, I know very little about them - last time I use one was in 
wood shop in high school (lets just say that Nixon lived in the White 
House), and the real sander was not far away...
