What, in your opinion, is the value of such conjecture? To me, the
straight Abhidhamma explanations seem right but, again, so what if
they do? What is the value of my conjecture?
According to the texts, wise consideration of the Buddha's teaching
leads to enlightenment. There is no mention of wisely considering
one's own teachings (or theories).
Therefore, I don't think either of us should be influenced by
thoughts of "This seems right (or wrong) to me."
