This may be true, but it seems to me that this is somewhat over complicating the matter. A theory:
I find your theory just as complicated as mine.
Mine has the advantage that we know that at leat some of what I described, happened. (Though not necessarily with Zetar.) And it accords with what the La-la Land guys said about the work they did.
My theory has the disadvantage that it seems to be wrong
! At least given what Dalen said about the 16mm film chain recording of Zetar. It could stand more checking.
Your theory might well be correct; but I hope not. I would prefer that further investigation reveal that your & SSOS' and Dalen's complaints were mistaken, did not have real basis. I'm still hoping that every "missing" cue turns out to be either a composite created by the music editor, or a case of using a wrong reference (as per my theory above), or something similar.
