Default To Collar or Not To Collar

There is a big controversy in general about collaring dogs - when and what types, etc. In my opinion, unless the dog needs a different collar as a training aid:

-Should be "naked" if they are contained (in the house, in a crate, dog run, etc.)
-Should only be collared if going to an open area or in public where they might run off.
-(This one is just my preference) Should use a harness for actually walking them on leash, but have the collar on for identification when walking and in public. (This is the harness I use - it is a martingale harness! Super wonderful in my opinion. Freedom No-Pull Harness)
What are ya'lls opinion on collaring? To collar or not to collar?
