Keith Richards Telecaster Wiring

So, I was reading about Keith Richards tele “Micawber” on various forums the other night. On one, there was some speculation that he was using a blend knob to blend the sound of the neck and the bridge, which got me to thinking about blend knobs. Like, how do they work?

Am I correct in guessing that with if you have one, and you only have two pickups, you don’t need a pickup switch? Is there any downside to having them? They sound kinda cool, so why don’t all two-pickup guitars have them?
