Jim -ATS lives in Washington. I'm sure he'll be along in a bit ...

In the meantime, I think the Post & Pier Foundation in earthquake lands has shown to be a poor use as a foundation, like you said. I don't know of any other 'reason' this construction in earthquake areas has gone away. Heck, the unit will walk off the post in an earthquake!

If you want to build a 900 ft post and pier foundation, go ahead, but do in on a lake w/o a roof. At least all of us can use it to do some fishing when we're not busy in the Forum!
