No need to 'avoid' this.

As I'm about to purchase some proportional cranks, the concern you express about legs impacting on torso as a consequence of proportional cranks is one I share. My degree of drop is already limited by exactly this with 180mm cranks. I suspect the 200's I intend to purchase will necessitate an increase in my stack dimension. The question whether they will provide more power than the position compromise absorbs will remain open until I have them.

I suspect that the vast majority of Zinn's clients are not elite racers and are more concerned with achieving a 'reasonably comfortable' fit allows them to cycle for fun and fitness. In that context I think he's got it reasonably well sorted. If one is concerned with pursuing pro peleton speeds, you are probably closer to the mark with your approach.
