I think there is plenty room for discussion here.
When the game becomes short handed, I think we should stop looking at position as UTG, HJ, CO, etc... Look at it as first to act in a four handed game.
For instance, you don't want to be "adjusting" your FR UTG range for four handed play. Your range should be heavily weighted towards other factors such as: blinds, stacks, and other players.
Your "1st to act" range might be huge if everyone else has clammed up and might be tighter if every raise is met by a shove.
