i may have misunderstood what you were saying. certainly in ERG mode power is to be controlled at the target power level regardless of cadence. i thought you were inferring that speed would be the same and that is what i did not think was quite right...

by the way, does anyone know what ERG stands for? my search turns up ERG to be short for Ergometer. but what is that exactly? speedometer...speed, altimeter...altitude, tensiometer...tension, but what is the ERG in Ergometer? if i recall erg is a unit of energy but i though that was a unit for atomic scaled particles.
