You're not supposed to spin the granny- the idea is that you throw all your power at it on your power stroke- which is why you're using the granny- "voot voot voot voot" instead of "rrrrrrrrrrrrr."
Love the description. I agree with everything you said and I feel some benefit using oval rings on the big ring especially when trying to power the flats for speed. My granny is usually a 24t or 23t and I feel more comfortable with a relaxed spin. It saves my knees. When I slow the cadence to take advantage of the power stroke I feel the fast/slow/fast/slow feel feels too uneven to me. This is probably where I should say, " different strokes for different folks," but I won't.😌
