In the Minecraft Snapshot 18w44a there are new crafting blocks (That don't currently work) and are most likely going to take away the recipes from the crafting table (You can only stylize banners with the loom). I for one am strongly against this, sorta. Though I am against with taking recipes away from the crafting table I think it would be cool if they could specialize in it. For example the stone cutter could show you all the stone recipes and allow you to make it, but you could still make it in the crafting table. I think none of these should be mandatory to make anything. Even including the Loom and banners.
