I don't know about all that, but I found the inspiration for that joint this morning!Yup... exactly as I described. Thanks for making the model.
Using patterns to do the layout in the field makes that joint reasonable to do if you either have time or deep pockets. Today, in a shop environment use of CNC machining makes it very doable.
Then again, if that joint isn't protected by wide overhangs it would be susceptible to rot. This as it will collect and trap water. For example, in the model the end grain cuts on the left piece are all but a funnel to guide water into the joint.
