IMO that's fine when using an IC, but not when you're using a chiller that works as the wort runs through it, into the fermenter. I'm using a plate chiller now, along with hop bags and have great results. Especially when Saturday's batch (5 gallons) was made with 5oz of hops (hop bursting).

Do the methods/processes that makes most sense for your equipment.

It's not mentioned a lot more because it doesn't work well with many of the systems we use as homebrewers. As with almost all things in brewing, what works for one person is rarely universally applicable.

I use a CFC and do it that way as standard procedure. I pump the wort through the CFC and back to the kettle in a continuous loop. Once sufficiently chilled, I stop the pump and let the hop debris & break material settle out. Basically the same result you have described. Been doing it this way for years without problems.

Snipe hunting, I guess you're to young to get it. Suffice it to say, whirlpooling seems to work for less people than it works for. It also has no place in a cfc setup, which a lot of people use.

would make for much better yeast collection after? and IMO if one loose the hop bag it makes for better hop utilization, and why would you not try to get as much of the gunk out as early as possible?

There are many other ways to accomplish that.
