There are certainly ways to solve for the (CdA,Crr) pairs analytically, and sometimes to find a unique solution. That depends more on the protocol than on the estimation algorithm.

I'm also curious if the whole virtual elevation concept works well enough to measure CdA/Crr with any precision.
Yes, but you need to be pretty careful.
