I think you pretty much have it right. I'll go as far as to say that even when he was alive, nobody was doing O'sensei's aikido. As sensei has told us in the past, O'sensei didn't do a lot of technique instruction. Meaning he didn't get up there and break a technique down slowly for everyone to pick up all the little things. He would show the technique and step aside while everyone did the tecnique, leaving it up to his higher ranking students to break it down for them.
