    Of course you vent the hive, but for insulation value the top of the insulation should be blocked. This prevents heat rising, sucking cold air under the insulation. Or so it appears to me.

    I would agree. If you let air flow chimney between the paper and the hive then you may solve the moisture issues but you certainly had negated the heat gain benefit.
