A View from the Top (Top Down Sweaters, that is)

This may belong in another category.
I am taking a look at top down sweater techniques. Cocoknits, Elizabeth Doherty set-in sleeve, Jennifer Wood saddle stitch, Barbara Walker and circular yoke designs.
Questions to look at are:
Is the structure just as sound as bottom up pieced?
How do you achieve shoulder definition in a “traditional” pattern? Stitches, color?
Set in sleeve techniques? Ease of understanding.
Would anyone be interested?

Karen Templer of Fringe Association has good advice and information about top down construction.
