Is this the thing we are talking about? It is what I think we are talking about but I am not sure.
Not really. Look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzDJdKl9PRc at about 24 seconds.

Is the point to hit uke's tsuba
I believe I already explained that it is not.

If you are trying to hit their wrist, then you shouldn't be hitting the tsuba, right?
How would you accomplish that, from that angle, when doing a proper cut? Perhaps by using a rubber sword?

If you are trying to hit their wrist, are you trying to hurt them during training? What is the point of the feedback you mention? That is feedback that...what happened exactly?
If you are doing empty-hand practice, and uke attacks with tsuki, is uke trying to hurt his/her partner during training?
