What is nice about it is that when I finish the two layers (rather
quickly), the bottom edges are already orriented right and it only
takes one 9-12 move sequence to fix those.

It is possible for someone to use a layer by layer method and achieve
sub 50-40 times, but i don't think you can get anylower. the good
thing about the layer by layer method is that you can easily adapt it
to the F2l or the Lars method.
