Oh, really??? 
In all the classical orchestra scores that I have looked at (and I have looked 
at a lot), I have not seen a single chord, but there are several tremolo 
shorthand notations (to save space, i.e. instead of g8[ g g g] g[ g g g] , 
they write g2:8 g:8) in about every violin/viola/cello score.

It really depends on the type of music you are using. In pop music, chords are 
more common, but in classical music, tremolo notation is just as essential!
