If the wrist is active in the throw, does that help control/eliminate off-axis-torque? And on the flipside, to me, if the wrist is passive, that may contribute to O.A.T.

I've been practicing a lot this work just focusing on wrist action, and that IMO, is what makes more sense to me. Or am I completely off target here?
Typically easier to first learn to keep it loose so it's the last lever to go. Once you get that sequence figured out you can add to it. To help keep the disc flat and push(least OAT/zero OAT doesn't exist) all the way through the extension there should be some rotation of the arm.

After a few more days practicing I'm getting a lot of benefit from "hammering the nail", which feels like throwing my hand at the imaginary nail. In particular it helps me to feel what Dave Dunipace calls the "steely stop" at the release point.
