Fig 8s 90 degree horizontal instead of vertical

Can I leave this here and ask for comments?

Does anyone use this technique for ensembles?

I can see the logic of it, but it's not a technique I've seen before or heard of anyone using. Did Blumlein play a part in this particular technique?

It looks almost like coincident hypercardiods at 90 degrees, or 120 if you wished for ensembles.

Is this a way of achieving closer stereo miking with adjustments of width, instead of having to have an ensemble within the 90 angle of the two (vertical) fig8s in Blumlein, whilst still retaining the spaciousness and imaging benefits of Blumlein crossed fig8s ?
