I agree with this. In some cases it would be better to place 2 bolts & enable a rap descent. In most cases trad stations shouldn't be disturbed. And possibly it may suit some hanging belays to have a single or 2 bolts depending on the situation. I'd just hope that if a single bolt were to be deemed necessary, it would be in a minority of cases where there is significant need & there are other obvious trad placements nearby.
