Why not? It replicates 808 and 909, plus any other drum sample you care to throw on it. Most techno long departed the pure 808 and 909 sound.
For ideal setup? I prefer the original always over a clone, somehow everyone managed to overlook the actual machines techno was made, and I found it strange.

That's only because Techno isn't stuck in the 90's, it has evolved.
Very little pure 909 drums in modern Techno.

Why one sequencer? Is there not something good about being able to create different types of sequences with different types of sequencers?

Do you really need one polysynth, let alone two?
Agreed, if you are making modern techno a sampler is uber important, polysynth less so. Mono synths can both provide sample fodder (kicks and sound effects for example) and be used within the performance. I am addicted to acid lines so for me a 303 clone is essential (I have two). The compromise with kit is to have enough to keep your performance interesting while still maintaining the ability to control it all.
