Just to add to Alberto's comments, HS and LS are extensively also used
when doing heavy-tailed node placement.  This will effect a generation
procedure like Waxman, which relies on distance, but will not effect a
BA-like method (all these and much more documented in the Medina et al's
CCR paper).   Cheers,
