I use that too, but that detail isn’t always possible.
In addition, I heard somewhere that there is some issue with cross grain shrinkage of the rim affecting the transfer by bowing the plywood and/or splitting the rim. TRUE? Anyone else hear that? Anyway, I try to limit the lap of the plywood onto the rim to a max of about 3” for this reason. Trouble is, that means the plywood must be cut to size and sometimes what I get is a fully lapped uncut sheet and 6 trillion nails all over the face of the rim and a look from the carpenter like, “What, now lots of nails ISN”T good?”.
I prefer using LTP connectors on the face of the wall or, when possible, just extending the shearwall sheathing down onto the rimboard.
