Observations are that the captured image can be significantly out of focus with liveview prior to tripping the shutter (the camera lights up a green square suggesting it has accurately acquired focus) or that the stored image is significantly less sharp than the one observed on the LCD prior to shutter-trip, even when a sufficiently fast shutter speed and rock-solid tripod are employed. This is due to the defective LV focus algorithm and also the shutter-mirror slap that is prevalent amongst copies of the 7D.

You don't know what you are talking about. In Live View AF the mirror is already tripped (in the up position). So there is no mirror slap. The exposure is finished before the mirror even moves.
