I would think that this is a matter of personal choice. In watching the New Yankee workshop over the years Norm used a “panel cutting sled”. It only had one runner because it was only used to support the work on one side of the blade. If you’re using a cross-cut sled, that spans both sides of the blade I would think that you would have better support and some redundancy. I’m sure a crosscut sled could be used with 1 runner, but two seems better, at least to me.
