Completely agree about the weight distribution with respect to handling. However, front panniers create a surprising amount of extra aerodynamic drag, even at modest speeds, or at any speed if there's a head wind. Just because of this reason, I've found it nicer to tour with only rear panniers, even when this results in poorer handling. It feels particularly unsteady at first but you quickly adjust to the less stable setup. I actually feel that the aerodynamic drag of a full pannier setup often slows you down more than the weight of the heavy load.
