Augment tables sounds fucking sick. I'm hoping that it won't completely outmode crit crafting, though. Right now the real money in crafting is from crits, but I could see augment tables working well as long as you still have to gather the materials from multiple professions in order to create an augment slot.
Plus, you still have to buy augments from crafters.
Since every prof has a different augment they can make, it could mean augments are going to be the new cash crop post-1.3.
