That's a good article.
I used to do the L/C/R thing more often than I do now.
The main reason I'm not too bothered about it these days is because a lot more people commonly listen on buds or cans so that's more of a consideration than it used to be. I'm not too fussy about micro panning though I tend to use amounts like 25,50, 75, 100% just to get in the ball park and try for depth with some judicious EQing. I don't particularly like hard-panned doubled guitars as is the norm I like to have them cross-talk a bit so I normally go 75% there anyway, I find it preferable in getting a fuller rythm tone that sounds more cohesive as a whole yet still gives width and doesn't crowd the centre.
I try and get that much balanced up by listening both in cans and nearfields and have a few walks round the room whilst mixing and tend to use short verbs and delays with as little tail as possible to fake an impression of space before I'll add any hall or plate type tails if wanted.
Lastly at the finishing off stage I may use an imaging tool on the overall mix and/or a bit of mid-sidery to round off.
I'm not recommending that for anyone else but it's just the way of working I've personally arrived at, FWIW.
Reminder to self:
“Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.”
