For those who take their laptop to work, this should give two very fine-grained backups one of which is by definition always offsite (and one would have the hourly backups both at home and at work).

It would be nice if it was automatic

The strategy, with a laptop, of having two TM backups (one at home, one at work) is pretty much perfect and it's worked very well for me for at least two years. What would be EVEN NICER would be if the MacBook were smart enough to see when it changes TM disks and then switch targets automatically. Currently the only way to do it seems to be to change the target disk location manually in TM Preferences. Unless someone can suggest a better way?!

PS, I noticed that the MacBook already does something similar with printers, switching the default printer automatically depending on location.
