I have been reading several different texts on queen rearing lately. [...] A few things come to mind, that so far have not been addressed.
So - with your vast practical queen-rearing experience you can see possibilities that no-one else has seen during the last 150 years - am I reading this right ?

Something else came to mind [...] Since bees build comb at 10° could someone simply flip a frame upside down 180° rather than "stretching the cell down"? [...] I haven't read anyone doing this yet, but I can't imagine it hasn't occurred to anyone before.
Rotate the frame through 90° - it's called the Hopkins Method.
