Ive had so many DM's about why I run casing and base returns long.
Its because I dont like masking floors and working over them. A tool always falls, or a cup of coffee, or wet boots tear the paper, etc. Masking against a floor is sloppy. There is usually a "hard line" left behind.
I spray all my baseboards, without masking, and use my @fein_international Starlock OMT with a HHS circular blade to cut a razor sharp line.
Now there is an added benefit to this. I dont like when I see baseboards painted to the floor. Walls move, and so do floors. Ever look at a floor in the winter and see a paint line creep out from under the baseboard? Wood shrinks in the winter and your once crisp cut line now comes out to wave hello.
I run the scrap of wood through the table saw to remove a hair of material. This splits the difference of the multitool blade, and gives me the perfect amount of clearance.
Never worry about paint again!
