    I agree with you, as long as you cut above the bud, the desiccation stops at the diaphragm. The length of the spare wood doesn’t really matter according to several scientific studies. And if you preprune in the winter and do the finishing fine tuning at the end of february, there will be no risk at frost damage.
    If the crown buds can mak a good healing of the wound, why should’t the first or secund bud do the same?
