Shure WL183 rigs

Hello everyone, I am getting my 2nd Shure WL-183 mic soon to make a
pair, so I will be building a rig sometime in the near future.
Hopefully by the Spring. I've looked at and admired John Hartog's
tree ears and Dan Dugan's Shoulder Pads rig. This is along what I am
looking to build (a portable setup while I am out hiking) I also
found Curt Olson's mic arrays interesting and well thought out
through his many tests, but not practical enough to carry around in a
rucksack (not offence Curt, of course) :)

I had intitially thought about building a foam head rig, with the WL-
183's inside the ears where they are on the foam head. It would be a
little bulky but light, I would split the foam head down the middle
for easy access to remove the mics for other applications, but comes
together for use. I was wondering if anyone has built a head mic? (Or
why not?)
Am I wrong or does this seems like it would be the best way to
arrange small omnidirectional mics? I am assuming this would sound
natural how the sounds travel to and around the head, to be picked up
in the ear area.
Or maybe I am thinking too much, as Dan, John, and Curts rigs do the
same thing? :)
