so if a reticle had the heavy posts on the ends, with say up to 6 minutes of marked hashes on the windage wire and only on the BOTTOM wire that would be the consensus??

put all this in an FFP reticle.
The lines above the recticle allow one to use them for a close range zero. I often zero my scope with MOA reticles with the 2 MOA mark above the reticle

Most on this site are beyond this "serious" level & are more aptly labelled (myself included) "extremists". That's why we even talk about two, three, or even five thousand dollar scopes.

I will differ on one other point: Although NightForce scopes have much better mechanisms with much more adjustment & heavier-duty tubes, the latest tests I've seen show Leupold's glass & coatings (at least on their better scopes) are better than NightForce. Neither Leupold nor NightForce compares well with Swarovski or Zeiss for clarity.
The only test of optics that matter to me are mine, the ones where I actually look through the scopes in low light and in shadows. Having personally tested Leupy VX3 against my older Nightforces scopes I put Nightforce ahead opticaly. S&B and Zeiss Davari being tops. Have not done a side by side with a Swarovski yet

so I guess this goes to show noone is going to be happy, I still say the majority of people aren't going to use the marks above the windage wire.

Is that based on your research in the market place?

I use the marks above the cross hair every time I line one up, cross hair is where I want to hit and then I check how the animal is bracketed, it works good for me. Another thing is for closer shots I know to what mark my bullet trajectory will rise, if it's on fur I know I'm GTG.
