I actually think the background of an experienced editor would be less likely to ‘screw up’ camera positioning as they know in their head what works in the edit.

I’d suggest a Director who knows what kind of shots will go together well (in collaboration with a good DoP of course) should (in theory) get more cohesive shots than, say, a first time Director who insists we cross the line because they’re set on one particular shot...

If you’ve got a vision of how the scene might cut in your head, it becomes a lot easier - and you’ll see straight away when a shot isn’t working.
