Hi Werner, I'm re-reading your post, and appreciating it more and more.

I think you are right .. and wrong haha. Theoretically, improved technique WILL increase pace. That's just physics. However, improving technique in one thing will ALSO have an impact on other things, and these we may or may not be aware of. So at first, there may be a momentarily huge improvement that then rapidly disappears as our body readjusts to find previous "homeostasis"/comfort.

One of the coaches here had the analogy of a rosary, each bead a FP, and that we needed to work our way around the rosary over and over again, in a spiral of development (iterative/step-wise improvement).

Do I understand this correctly:

To achieve sustainable development requires rennaisence: renewed insight and foci, because development is a spiral not a linear process.
