real issue. You are correct in that the thermal profile vs. time is
different (sorry, I am not THE metals guru), so I am not the person to
get into real nitty gritty details.
As I understand it, CRS has a work hardened surface and that is what
limits wear, annealed it goes away, normalized it remains.
Normalizing CRS will not take the warp out of it, it will remove
stresses and limit further warping.
Hope this helps.

I think that is the best place to start.
