Great, now I have GAS.

But since no one cuts 8x8 film, is it clear that there's any real advantage over shooting 8x10 and cropping at print time? I mean, I yield to no one in my love for square formats, but it seems like if you're going to remove a 2x8 strip from every sheet, you might as well expose it instead and have the slight extra flexibility.

To the OP's question, I think on the whole good composition is where you see it, independent of format. The one thing that strikes me about square formats is that they really won't let you get away with bullet composition (unless you're *trying* for an artificially symmetric, geometric image).
