There are certainly differences of opinion among razor honers and my approach shouldn't be considered a 'final opinion', just an opinion. I'm not a fan of using the traditional Naguras on polishing stones either (Koma and Botan Naguras, etc) but many swear by that approach even going back 50 or so years in the Japanese literature for barbers. As I mentioned, the micrographs you show are excellent results, so it is hard to argue success, but let us know how this alternate approach works for you.
