For MS with two LDC mics I always use a Manfrotto 154b (microphone support) set vertically and fitted to the top of the mic stand (for which I usually use a Manfrotto 1004BAC) with a Manfrotto 026 Lite-Tite Swivel Adapter. I can't see why this wouldn't work with an SDC for the mid mic, though, personally I would use two similar mics for M and S (and two CAD M179s would give you all sorts of options). That said, a vertical LDC MS pair isn't the most minimalist thing in visual terms!
