Much of what you say is realistic. But the historical narrowing of the
debate on the TP is motivated by Bortkiewicz's desire to check Marx's
reasoning in a special case (of simple reproduction, no price-value
divergence due to market uncertainties etc.). Marx's distinction
between prices of production and market prices has the same
theoretical motivation, I think. If value-theory fails in this special
case -- then why should it scale up to your more realistic situations?
One contribution of the TSS approach is to argue that this special
case is irrelevant. I am not so sure.
