Uhh, unless I am missing something primer pockets getting loose have everything to do with the abuse of a case. By definition . . .
In an earlier post, you talked about a friend of yours that built a special jig to tighten primer pockets, and then still needed to seal them with nail polish to avoid gas leaks/bolt face etching. The context of the post is that he runs high overpressure and that is why this is necessary.
While it may work, I don't think that you can make a case that it is best practice, and the experience of your friend does NOT mean that it is safe in others' equipment. Everyone is ultimately responsible for their own decisions, but it is worth keeping in mind that some people take what they read on these sites at face value (as a best practice, as highly researched, etc).
For me, a special jig and sealing primer pockets to avoid bolt etch are waaaaay outside my comfort zone. I subscribe to Lefty's idea of moving up to a cartridge that does what I want within specifications that have been tested empirically as safe.
