Toby is aware that Shodokan Aikido combines kata training and randori. Certain techniques are considered for safety in a shiai setting but others found in kata sets and elsewhere are not. I use the word considered as modified suggests they are changed - allowed variations is a clearer statement. The shift to nasty is actually very small and can be studied. Randori and by extension shiai really is about working under stress - the analogy is very good as you say.
Secondly, the underlying message of the article, stress.
