Uke pushes, shite uses the power of the center line to hold kamae, which off balances uke, shite then pivots and throws.

ahhh. cool.

For this, which is a technique I really like playing with (when I was off training injured, it was the one I most often found myself having waking dreams of) I generally recieve a bit while dropping, then pivot and throw.

This may be a stylistic difference, different teachings.

It may reflect that as a small middle aged woman its more natural for me to find openings based on non-resistance (even on strong irimi entrances, its important for me to find the slight angle that permits it to not be direct resistance).

Either way, worth playing with...thank you.
