I'd want the sockets on different legs. It's not common, but
I know of at least two cases where one leg was cold. One
time was AM, when we were about to start church services,
and half the stuff didn't work. Another was after an ice
storm. I was asked about supplying power to a guy's furnace.
The furnace was on the cold leg, as the power co was going
about restoring power.
I don't think the capacitance bit is a big issue.
