I would infer Garth meant this
and use these for a higher attachment point instead of just the fork crown
"I'd get a porteur rack of some sort, prolly the Soma Deluxe or the VO one
with the Surly strut kit to attach to the mid fork eyelets. Then I'd either
use a bag inside the fence of the rack or attach some other kind of
container, just not a flimsy wire basket since they are not made to be
attached with the basket wires."
My experience with front racks (I tend to wind up buying things picking up
things and generally adding stuff to capacity). I had a Nitto M-12 on a
Rambouillet and an Ocean Air Cycles Demi Porteur bag and overloaded it too
often and it was wobbly. Found a used Nitto 27F and its great. Moved the
M-12 to the SO's Betty Foy and overloaded/didn't like the safety strap Got
a used Nitto Big Front rack w/ basket and a Makeshifter Canvas Works
basketcase. Easy to load/unload take with and can take panniers.
I set up a differnt Betty Foy with a M-18 marks rack with both struts going
to one mount point and the crown attachment. Has a wald basket and I think
its nice looks clean I think it is much better than the M-12 but I feel
like it should have a set of longer struts to the drop out ie. Coreys Chev.

would go for the Nitto 27F/Big Rack for Pannier ability.
