One problem with a "power table" is that it's only "comments" -- it's not
used to generate the netlist.  It's quite possible a designer could change
the power connection for the symbol but forget to update the table, or
vice-versa.  Or even change the symbol in the library, and the table, but
somehow the library change doesn't get updated into the schematic (something
many of us have seen more than once).

PERSONALLY, I don't find a couple extra pins per IC that cluttering.  I also
find it easier to have the power net listed there than having to flip to
another page (especially since that "flipping" is usually on a pdf file!).
HOWEVER, much of this stuff IS personal preference -- to each his own!

If someone needs to know exactly what supplies
are connected to a chip I really don't see that having to look it up in a
netlist or power table on the last sheet is so very different.
