Pardon my ignorance (which knows no bounds!), but wouldn't it be harder to keep the bow from hitting a string adjacent to the one you actually want to play?  I suppose that it would make fast shuffle bowing easier, since the bow angle has to change less during the shuffles.  I also suppose that it might be advantageous for cross-tuned fiddles since the adjacent strings likely are tuned to either the root or some other harmonically propitious note, making accidentally playing an adjacent string highly desirable in many if not most cases.

After you posted this I altered my bridge in the same fashion and I like it much better, I did it twice actually and after the 2nd time I  figured it was enough. I did,nt want to have to block it up all because I whittled to much.

Thank You,
