But your perspective is incredibly skewed in that you think a one-size-fits-all approach has anything to do with anything.

It really doesn't.

Talent is the trump card that you keep playing without acknowledging.

10 hours a week gets me competitive enough to hang in big crits. 5 hours a week got me dropped in 20 minutes this year at Sunny King PRT. I just can't get my meager FTP high enough off of 5 hours, and even with 10 to 15 hours it's never high enough to put me into contention in anything more than a field sprint at that level of racing. 20+ hours was always extremely detrimental, too, when I had the time and motivation to try that.
