That is precisely the sort of plan for highest quality ..... however. It is really only necessary at close range OR if you have a dominant foreground feature that is close to the camera. It is a matter of mounting the lens to the tripod and allowing the camera to shift from side to side. Keep in mind though that this would place much higher stress on the rack and pinion than it is probably engineered to withstand.
On a view camera it is usual to use the movements of the film standard to adjust the geometry of the image and the movements on the lens standard to adjust the focus. This is how I work with my Sinar but the little Linhof which you once posted a pic of from my Ebay listing does not allow direct shift at the rear — a trade off for portability and rigidity.
