I think it's relatively infrequent that we make inferences where
independence matters, so it makes sense to use tests that are marginally
well-behaved. When do you care about the simultaneous behaviour of two
The nice thing about ANOVA tests is that each one is valid regardless of
the presence or absence of effects in other rows. This doesn't require
Where you might use independence is to try to construct a combined
p-value looking for a violation of any of several hypotheses, but if
that's the test you're interested in, you should just have pooled the
terms in the numerator.
