Does anybody have some guidance on this topic?
For some models, I would use a 4-view layout. I fix one view as the work view, and occasionally click in other views. But very often a non-work view unexpectedly becomes the work view. It's annoying.
To be honest I think you'll find most people use a single view layout these days. The multiple view layout was designed before things like Spaceballs were invented so the user had easy access to several views of the model, but these days it is so easy to navigate around the model using a Spaceball (or even the mouse) that having to squish the model into smaller viewports in a multi-view layout is not worth it.
Having said that, multi-view layout should work OK., but you may find it hard getting much support due to the low number of people using it.
