How often do you raise and lower your seatpost?

I think these can be connected directly to the seatpost. I can't tell if they're designed to be a collar, or clamp directly to the post, or either one.

I wonder if there would be any benefits of doing dual forward mounts for the rack. One to the seatstays, and one to the post. Racks with those thin steel strips should be able to take an extra pair.
I thought about this one. You know, if it was a collar that could slide up and down the length of the seatpost, that could be the solution. I need that forward attachment point to be higher.
