I don't really see the point in not teaching a dog to sit on a recall or heel... Dogs can learn context situations... Like to go after and take down animals on a hunt, but leave the animals at home or on the farm alone... When to let people in the door, or when to keep people out. Discerning between playing and fighting. Knowing when they can bite and when they can't... Understanding they're hitting a sleeve, not an arm. Heel without sitting in the breed ring, and heeling with a sit outside of it. Knowing they can go buck wild in the yard, but have to "turn off" indoors...
Really, it just depends on how far the handler is going to go to train them to recognize that context
