I showed you an easy way out.

An adult would have taken advantage of the favor. A child would compose a rant, in order to avoid dealing with his own statement.

Here it is again:

Was reminded of this thread wile I was looking for something else, and realized, I left a question unanswered.

3. Variable rate springs will do nothing to improve handling. I would expect them to do the opposite.
Why would they decrease handling performance?

The problem you run into with progressive coils is that they can be very unpredictable in the corners. Sure they may ride a little nicer than just a straight, stiffer, standard coil but when you get into the turns, you don't always know what your going to get with the progressives.
With the standard coil its the same stiffness all of the time whether your cornering, cruising or what have you.

My understanding is: By the time you get into the stiff part of the spring, you've lost the advantage you never had.

Either explanation works for me.
