Am I expecting too much thinking that cases 3-4&5 are so vastly different?

Those case things are just starting points and if you look at what is different about them it is very subtle. Pick one and tweak it. You are the one that has to do most of the work regardless of what case you have chosen or how many focus points you have active. It's all about your tracking skill and how smooth you are period. I have no tips. I don't think you need any.

85% to 90% is pretty good for moving subjects. Keep after it. If you do get to 100% keepers, you might be in a class of your own.

I have difficulty with kingfishers and paltry when they are coming out of the water. I imagine whatever technique and settings used successfully for that would be similar for kite sail boarding. ... Anyone?

I think you're in really difficult territory there. It's just really difficult I had a difficulty with a particular aspect of running photography for ages until I noticed that the Pros I see at races don't even try it. They don't because it'll usually fail.

However, when you're doing it for fun, it's worth persisting for the odd brilliant one you'll get. The myth of perfect autofocus is just that, a myth..
