I have no use for strum hollows. I build traditional Virginia dulcimores and they didn't have them is one reason. The other reason is I never strum there so there's no sense in going through the extra work to add one if I don't strum there.
However I think a lot of fingerpickers do use the strum hollow area. So I reckon it would come in handy for them.
I'm probably the odd man out here. I hate the feel of loose feeling strings. If I'm chording 15# tension feels ok but playing noter/drone I prefer 17-20# tension.
But I also have different dulcimers for different tunings so the string tension stays pretty much the same on all of them.
