Some long explanation by the OP trying to defend teaching the incorrect service grip to beginners. I've seen Tennis teachers at Parks and Recreation teach the eastern FH grip for serves. It's a shortcut grip that allows beginners to get the ball into the service box and avoid double faults, but good luck learning a slice or kick serve later on. You can spot that fry pan grip (eastern FH grip) a mile away, especially on the 2nd serve, it looks crappy. And no you don't have to have aspirations to be on the pro-tour to learn the continental grip for serves.
