Sidebar on center columns: The center column is frequently trashed as being a compromise of design, featured for marketing to those not understanding that it "puts on monopod on top of your tripod."

Valid criticism, no doubt, and I'm not refuting that. However, for those wishing a general purpose tripod, the center column is great for studio work, where flash is your illumination, and any minor compromise in stability is never evident when the flash illumination becomes the effective shutter duration.
