Rather than wade in with my opinion I would recommend that you =
1- Have the barrel fluted by the barrel maker because he is responsible for the
finished product and if it is out of spec. he has to make it good.
As to the stiffness - Log on to Lilja,s Web site and look under FAQ,s about this subject.
Other barrel makers may have something about it, but Dan has a good explanation.
And last but not least- Accuracy is not effected by a proper fluting job on a proper sized
Improper fluting can be a disaster and even dangerous if not done properly just like
anything else with firearms.
