I have had both stationary and portable miter-stands and have appreciated both in the right situation. For the one in my shop I love the accuracy and the ease of use with it's Kreg stops etc. The portable I like for that reason it was portable had big wheels etc. What I've always wanted was the best of both worlds and I think I may have figured it out.
I currently use a universal tool stand that I built myself and many of you may have heard of. It's 6' long with a section in the middle for my Mitersaw. I have a fence I can attach to the top and can do multiple setups with the stand which is all cabinets underneath. What I'd like to do since that is a bit low for Miterwork (I like it a little higher that counter height for ease of seeing the cut marks etc.) What I thought of doing was taking that setup for my shop and adding Norm's folding miter stand as an attachment for the top. Then I have the portability of taking the setup with me to the job and the reliability of having it stationary in the shop.
