I'm in agreement with you...mostly.
The higher the rank the more I resist, but not to the point of undermining their technique. I think at 7th and 6th and 5th Kyu's you're still going through the motions of where you (as nage) should be, as if only having uke being your guide. 5th and 4th Kyu is your transition phase where more resistance comes into play, and this starts to "mold" your technique to the point when you get to 3rd/2nd/ aren't worried about uke resisting...or shouldn't be. Then again I'm a perfectionist. If I'm working with 3rd kyu or above, I will resist a lot to let them know that I'm not just giving them the technique...

Then again...I could be wrong.

...then again, that's just me.
