It all depends on the circumstances. I never wrote that you could
blindly replace all your SM58s with omnis. I wrote that I've done
it in some cases, and with good results.
Also note that the miniature DPAs often used on violins, horns and
others (including singers) are omnis.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
