Of course, no pedal kickback is very hard to do (maybe impossible while maintaining some useful positive anti-squat) but more "active" designs with less kickback are possible, and they will always feel better in the case of a locked-up or slow-rolling wheel no matter the hub. Oh yes, 110% preferential. But... ...again, I'm less worried about _probability_ of the events and more worried about _consistency_ of the events. Is it better (in general) to have a suspension that, with a locked rear wheel, always stiffens a medium amount*, or that sometimes stiffens a little and sometime stiffens a lot? *(Yes, there is always a range, always "a little or a lot", but high-engagement shrinks the difference and leans more towards the "perfect consistency" end of that idealized spectrum, and that's the point I'm trying to make.)
