The idea of sitting is more about making the dog pay attention to you instead of the other dog. That sitting politely works well for greeting people, petting, etc. but, doesn't work real well for saying Hi to another dog. It's a submissive/vulnerable position..dogs just don't greet each other by sitting down face to face.

For the actual dog to dog greeting after the owners have said Hello, the dogs should be allowed to assume their natural stance, sniff each other and then either let them play or you move on.
