I think you will find your opinion that no-one runs it is slightly optimistic!
A lot of these type of choices tend to be geographical. I have no doubt that no-one plays these things within 200 miles of you, but whether you are really sure of Florida, Alaska, Saskatchewan, Tijuana, Bermuda and Maine I doubt!
It is true that if you are in a club which is used to N/S bumps then in general it is better to play them than a share and relay. However, my experience is that players do not make silly mistakes over boards so long as the TD is careful.
For example, if there is a relay [which I think is what you call a bye-stand] then it must
be phsically between the two tables, and must be on a chair or table. If the TD expects players to moce the boards to somewhere on the edge of the room or the floor then when it goes wrong it is the TD's fault.
