Agree pretty much. I don't see much evidence of "intent" driven structure, but I am not as strict as you are
I don't see intent-driven mechanisms (i.e. tanden/meimon usage, etc.) for holding structure, either. But he does start with alignment and "relaxation" -- alignment of his joints. Because the alignments are passive (not held by intent-driven adjustments of sinew, fascia, specific muscle), he can't maintain them once he moves.
