Some of the other response you give talk about doing more damage to kill faster to not get hit. Does 75 vs 80 max resists not make a huge difference in ubers/end game? What would happen if you tried to achieve say, 95 max resist for ubers (any char)? Would it be useless because ubers stick to physical and magic damage?
For most things, 80% Elemental Res is pretty much all you need. Your Regen, sustain, Avoid, and Mana Shield all serve as additional "damage mitigation," regardless of damage type. There are certain Ubers/Uber boss fights for which you'll want higher res, but those usually involve just maxing res to one Element. In those cases, you can just swap out socket fillers at the appropriate times to meet your needs.
