If you like to use coincident mic techniques, you can put an MS pair in the middle of the boojum/jnorman array. Boojum recommended this to me as it permits more adjustments in post (width as well as the directional/omni blend). Faulkner does not do this with his array, as he stated that he doesn't like the sound of coincident pairs. Ultimately the combination of omni and directional mics in a single array is not the perfect solution - just a good compromise in many situations that don't permit extensive sound checking and unfettered mic placement. I'm a fan.
