Mr. Neal seems to believe that Judoka will generally have the advantage in adaptability and ma-ai, due to variant training methods.
Exactly my point. The training methods make all the difference. A Mixed Martial Arts fighter would in the same light come into a Judo dojo and probably defeat everyone there because they train that much harder and with less restrictions.

It's more debatable if there's an advantage to having kata or randori practice as the primary form of training.
I am not sure that is really that debatable. kata is good for learning the moves but not applying them against a resisting opponent. A mixture of Kata and randori is necessary or effective technique at least against a strong and knowledgable oppponent.
