"With a group of speakers, I go for a single track for each speaker. There's no advantage to be had from using stereo pairs unless the audio was mixed to stereo on location (which is very unusual in my experience)".....

That's interesting...what I have been doing is taking my mono signal from the wireless lav, duplicating it into 2 tracks and then setting it as a stereo pair within FCP....seems like you are saying this step is unnecessary.

I can see that with your technique I could play with the controls that determine if the sound is coming from the right or left speaker for each audio track (each person speaking) to give the soundtrack more of a sense that one person is sitting to the far right, another is in the middle somewhere and then there's one person seated on the left.
