All good points, although assuming you're running a regular drivetrain with a suspension system that results in the axle-BB distance growing under compression (most bike designs these days, if not all) - no amount of "active" suspension is going to avoid pedal kickback. I did mention that this "isn't for everybody", but in an apples to apples comparison, I much prefer the ride of a low engagement hub. 20* float is a lot when you think about it. Someone with more time on their hands (and better math skills) than me could certainly figure out exactly how much the chain grows on my Enduro, and then come up with the probability of the freehub engaging on any given suspension cycle. Also dependent on the cog you're in.
