Think I'm missing something: Kirk's collar for the 70-200 f4 lens attaches to a tripod head directly like a quick release plate?  Or does it attach to a plate, which then attached to the tripod head?

If it attaches to the tripod head, not a plate that attaches to a head, what sorts of heads have you put it on?

You can see that it has a full-length dovetail to fit an Arca-Swiss compatible clamp, but it is also tapped for standard (3/8"?) tripod-mounting thread. If it is 3/8" you can insert a brass adapter to reduce it to 1/4"-20 standard. No separate plate is required.
