Well, one session down, but I need another one before I put pen to paper.
I will say this, though: no timing issues.

Mark, put one of your current rackets head up against the NRZS. The reason there's no timing issues, is because it's only the bottom half of the head thats smaller than a regular ISO head shape.
And nobody hits the shuttle there, right?
The only timing issue I had was that because the sweetspot is so high in the head, I found I could (and should) try to take the shuttle slightly earlier than I normally would. This kind of adds to the 'illusion' of speed - the racket is not faster, it's just encouraging YOU to be faster.
The only real "if" I have, is that I wonder if I had more time with it, whether I'd get used to the 'soft' feeling of the sweetspot and the noticeably less soft feeling elsewhere, or whether it would start to annoy me. It's a bit schizophrenic like that, but also quite compelling.

I'd surmise the soft feeling at the sweetspot is due to the straightened cross grommets, effectively lengthening those few crosses by 5-6mm each.
It does feel mushy there, relative to elsewhere on the stringbed.

It doesn't effectively lengthen the strings at all.
The string doesn't move significantly inside the hole, so it doesn't matter what direction the hole is drilled in the frame.
The only way the string would be actively lengthened, is if Yonex had made the holes tapered to the point that where the string exits the frame, it doesn't touch anything. But it does.
I think the strings might be more effectively damped, but they aren't effectively longer. Even if they were, their effect would be negated by the ones that aren't. They don't act independently.
HOWEVER......grab the top of the frame and the bottom of the frame and try to snap the head in half.
Notice the amount of flex in the head?? Scary.

its much easier for power to be generated from the zspeed as obviously the head heaviness is much more distinct, the hitting feel is different as well, ougi feels less whippy than the zspeed, and upon shuttle contact, the ougi feels a bit more dead, the zspeed livelier.

would the shiden feel faster?
