Then by your logic, we should constantly be adding or removing weights from the camera body depending on which lenses we are using, in order to maintain "balance" between the camera body and lens!

Yes that would be good - as the balance is important.

By the way, ever hear of a monopod?

Yes, I use them  often, but you are welcome to try and pan with a F1 car in race trim in a corner that opens out and thus allows them to accelerate fully...

I And from personal experience, after a long day of shooting and hauling around gear, my back and shoulders feel better from carrying around a LIGHTER camera, not a HEAVIER camera.

Well, that's not my experience as for me the Position at which I have to support the lens is critically important and if that shifts to the lens that gets exceedingly painful as it puts strain on my spine. If the center of gravity is closer to my body while I use the combination I have more weight but less strain on my back - since I have a slipped disc in my back I can tell immediately if the center of gravity is comfortable for me or not and with the 60D it isn't even with small lenses such as the 70-200 f/2.8L USM...
