You are able to answer this for yourself, by noting the lack of such a thing. I cannot fathom why you've asked it...
Hmm, now I'm completely confused. Sorry.

What I meant was that the teachers I'm familiar with teach all that stuff you mention, and no-one here seems to be arguing that these aspects are not important. I don't see any point in worrying about some anonymous people who might be teaching or practising something less effective in a forum dedicated to practising well.

Of course, I'm not claiming to actually practise this stuff effectively at all times... That's where your discussion is useful --- a means of improving what we do.
