Really cutting out the middleman is contracting direct, company to company, without any agent, in-house or not. My experience, probably not everyone's was that, at least where the clients were SMBs.

On a wider scale I wonder if there's scope for a freelancer owned agency. Not so much a group of freelancers doing their own pimping but a regular Ltd Co with the shares spread out between freelancers with the board drawn from the shareholders. The purpose wouldn't be to find work for just the shareholders, it would need a wider resource base, but to ensure that there was at least one agency drawing up proper IR35-resistant contracts and maybe educating clients.
