walking is basically controlled falling. The martial value in not moving via a controlled fall is that you center is never pitching in the direction you want to go, making it harder for someone to take advantage of your momentum. I would agree about the waza comment and also add that focusing on moving that way makes waza both easier and harder.
Actually I think Vlad's comment was not so much about the mechanics of walking, although those are important as well, but more about who and what we are at all times.

Take care,
