That is because you are talking about power, not fields.....
Herzog says you lost me from here on BECAUSE transmissions lines ARE the
FIELDS between two conductors; not just two wires alone, so they cannot be
summarily dismissed. And they math truly works with various dielectrics,
including that vacuum.
Forward and reflected components are is "Imaginary power" split into
components to make the math easier to handle, for those of enough not well
versed in raising something to a negative J, or 90 degree rotation.
