This assumption was once a "given" fact in 1/4 wave Tesla
coiling, and has been since proven false. I respectfully submit
that properly designed bipolar coils are also capable of
exceeding these "limitations". Please expand on your references.

I find real innovation in this line of thought. This is an area
that is wide open to experimenters, yet few seem willing to step
in and fill the gaps with modern knowledge (read reproducible
experiments) on this subject. The key word here is experiment.
