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.
Birth Certificate, Passport, Marriage License Driver's License and Residency Permit all say I'm a Fred. I guess there's no denying it.
