Good points - excellent, in fact. Not that I am by any means a superior rider, but I've got 20+ years in the saddle and a few at tracks.

Here's my rear braking:

1. I avoid it, as practice, because as you put it very well I do not wish to reinforce the "go-to" control in an emergency.
2. I'll apply it at low speeds and where the bike is more upright or near vertical.
3. And/or I play with it for practice; skidding, emerency slides, backing the rear in...

But, 95% of my braking is front, butt backed on the saddle for hard braking.
