Here in Oregon it seems every house is truss roofed and no body would want to drill the bottom 2X4 member of the trusses. I guess the best thing would be to route the home runs in some orderly fashion so that future remodeling would have an option to somehow box in the home run area.
Just one further comment, Frodo, cable safety is personnel safety. Course, if we had AFCI's on all circuits we wouldn't have to worry about burning the house down, would we?
