Just my opinion..

Koshinage, like all the katas we practice in Aikido, is a particular scenerio. It tells a story.

In certain situations (ie uke moving with a certain intent with motion in a particular direction, etc) koshinage is wonderful.

Obviously you can't just try to force it and then say "it's so unnatural" after it feels like it wouldn't have worked off the mat.
