Picking up on Dan's point about headwinds, is it then possible to quantify when a less powerful player can throw the high-speed stuff on its manufacturer-designed flight path, given the player knows his/her usual out of hand speed and the current headwind speed?

We certainly have the technology to determine the speed of a disc, so why aren't the manufacturers publishing the speed needed to evoke the intended flight path for their disc models.
ok, here you go, have a look at this vibram fight ratings chart

This times 1000.

I met a self-proclaimed newbie on the course last night asking for some pointers.

He was RHFH'ing a 175 Pro Destroyer, and although he was getting decent distance out of it, it was FUGLY to watch.

I told him to grab a Teebird, watch a bunch of tutorial videos on YouTube (what up, Mike C.??) and wait on the Destroyer for awhile.
