The problem is that until recently, and particularly in Israel, the
context was where a shul with no consistent nusach would cause fighting
and the whole agudos-agudos issue meant requiring a single nusach as
the shul's minhag hamaqom. This social setting in which democratizing
the minyan's nusach adds to the unity is new. (And not true here in
the US.) So, I would look among recent and contemporary Israeli posqim,
not expecting to find it addressed elsewhere.

And it seems even in Israel, it doesn't always increase unity, as
is evienced by:
:                                                               At mincha,
: the shatz was ashkenaz but said the 13 middot! I asked him afterwards
: and he told me this was the shul, minhag due to shalom bayit.

Tir'u baTov!
