I agree with pretty much everything you stated except for the above. It's just not fair to judge the USTA HP yet on results since this is still relatively new. Academies definately have plenty of failures per every champion they produce.
Also, from speaking with one HP coach in particular, they push kids to play towards college more than just thinking about going pro. They don't put pro pressure on them & instead make sure they keep strong academics so that all options can be open for them.
