It may have applied way back when, but not with modern frames.
The frames deform and, yes, if your frame is now shorter and wider, the sweetspot will also be marginally wider.
Agree. I think that if there is a widening effect, it's negligble/imperceptible. Some I'm sure will swear they can tell the difference, but to that I say people often see/hear/feel what they want to. Still, I've yet to find data that shows looser crosses widen the sweetspot...and I've looked!
