It seems to me that it would be very flexible. Give the total Humbucker sound plus a single coil. It doesn't really get much better than that I would think.
But I see almost every other config but HHS. HSS is common and would be nice but do you know of vendors that use HHS?
actually jerry had coil cut switches for the humbuckers. he mainly liked the middle pickup and for the most part single coil mode. wolf later had parallel wiring without the single coil option, but parallel imho sounds very similiar to a single coil tone with a little more definition then straight single coil.
who know's why more don't use it. scott walker uses that config on some of his axes. http://www.scottwalkerguitars.com/

"Without a doubt, the quality of your instrument will effect your tone, and any pickups, effects, amps, and microphones used along the way will also have an impact on the sound waves."~Cameron Mizell
