RE miles in service:
No. Not yet. Maybe I'll have to change this setup someday.
Bench tests often will be less than suitable on the road..

The V brake pull drop bars will have different pull rates
to all but Paul's Top Mount lever with it's pivot pin fulcrum moved
to the B location..

The Travel agent piece will do the travel pull modification ,
and still use the lever sets you have..
and have proven their functionality..

FWIW,my favorite Trekking bar setup,
uses Magura's HS33 Hydro Stop Rim brakes .
or the Avid BB7 disc brakes . Have 1 0f each

my Cross bike uses Cantilever brakes , same Shimano Lever
+ cross top mount 2nd levers..
they, cantilevers, need much less cable pull to work..
