I think the point is that the jerk/surge is a consequence of engineering it for the quickest shift and acceleration. To engineer out the jerk/surge means that you will not be operating at maximum performance. And this is precisely what the lesser modes are for.

Anyways, that the way I read it. I believe that your interpretation is just different. I don't see it as a culture or age thing.
