I like to use my cursor keys to scroll from table to table, and putting
each table anchor in its own paragraph lets me do that. If they're all on
the same line, pressing the up or down arrow once pops you to the beginning
or end of all of the tables that are anchored in the same line. I do a lot
of documents with hundreds of tables that are one right after the other, so
having an anchor anywhere but on its own line becomes a nuisance.

Putting all the anchors in the same line also makes it much difficult to
select just one table, since unless you are VERY disciplined about putting
a space between them, FM drops the anchors on top of each other. And
(again) if you have a lot of them, even using just a small space between
can make the anchors wrap to another line (or three or four), which messes
up your spacing all over again but for a different reason.
