Agreed. For several years I have been doing without hyphens and I have yet to write something ambiguous. I conclude that they are unnecessary. I'm fine writing well matched or wellmatched instead of well-matched. Readers aren't stupid.
It lookes like double barreled pen names aren't common in hardboiled and noir. Can you imagine a mean streets story written by Wilbur Speedington-Smythe?
