In general, climbers don't often clip the rope into their harness with carabiners. They usually tie the rope on. However, there are times when people do clip the rope to their harnesses instead of tieing in. In these cases I'd definitely use two opposite and opposed carabiners just as I would with a TR anchor. It is true that you could use one locker, but I'm usually worrying about the climbing and not tending the carabiner. Since I do not have my attention focused on assuring that the carabiner remains locked, I prefer to have 2 carabiners.

As for the carabiner used to attach a belay device, in that case you are able to check that it remains locked and thus one is ok.
