Green Building Q&A: Another drainage plane?

I'm planning on residing my 1970's house soon. - I currently have T-1-11 nailed on the studs (both sheathing and siding) with 15# felt under it. - I will do lap siding & shingles over battens to create a rain screen over the T-1-11. - Location is western Oregon (temperate & wet) I'm considering putting an additional layer of #15 felt over the T-1-11 as a draining plane, but I'm concerned I'll create a "rot sandwich" with felt on both sides of the T-1-11. If I leave it out, then I have just augmented the existing sheathing system with another layer and air gap. Note that other than some UV wear, the siding is in excellent condition. Any experience or input here - felt or no felt? Thanks Troy
