You seem like a very knowledgable guy and what you say makes sense. Still, if I were designing a program with only 1 shoulder exercise, I would follow the advice of the experts that created this site:

Only one deltoid selection is necessary. A Side Deltoid selection is recommended since Front Deltoid assists during Chest exercises.

Well that is fine.

Charlie just asked for advice and you gave him some but I thought it would be unjust for him to think your advice was the only way to design a program so I just wanted to give my opinion.

You will notice that we have gotten away from Charlie's question since you recommended getting rid of the military press for dips when really the site seems to confirm that you should do neither what I said or what you said.

Honestly speaking, you can not work your entire shoulder out by just doing one or two exercises. You may get the front/side or even rear delts, but you will be missing what is really important when it comes to staying injury free, the rotator cuffs. For a truely balanced and injury preventive work out, you need to exercise your rotator cuffs just as much as any other muscle group. Also there is no "one exercise fits all" when it comes to working your rotator cuffs out. Remember, if you neglect these "little" muscle groups, you will are more likely to become injuried while attempting heavier loads with other exercises. Ie; bench press, etc.
