When to use a transition strip

What is the max width of a room can be before you need to use a transition strip. I have a 20 foot wide room that i spit with pocket doors. I would like to have one continous look when i put down a laminate floor . Is it ok not to use the strip at the pocket door entrance

Pictures would help. I would think the only time you really need a transition strip is when you have two different flooring materials or two different levels coming together. If you are saying that a continuous floor is not possible in this room for some reason then it seems to me that the pocket doors would be the place to put the transition but like I said, pictures would help.
