I generally check the transverse directo=ion as unreinforced concrete to verify the need for transverse reinforcing. In most cases I work in, there is rarely a need for transverse reinforcing. The longitudingal bars are to bridge over soft spots in the soils which cannot be predicted as to the length of these soft spots. My understanding is that some people use the 1/3 provision (10.5.3) for minimum "beam reinforcing in some strip footings when addressing longitudinal steel. I would be interested in the "consensus of the group" on this. The code is not clear that I can tell in this area.
