you never leave your eggs in one basket and there no pros on speed rappelling other than getting yourself killed.

the only time you want any type of simul or tandem rap is when you are in a serious life and death situation where every second counts. example of that would be stuck on the wall with possible upcoming avalanche or rockfall (On, K2, Denali,Himalayas,..... ) with several people needed to rap off the ledge fast . I do not see that happening with most of these weekend rock climbers under a blue sky with bomb proof routs.
