"an inductor on the secondary side allows (theoretically) any
ammount of resonant rise"

	Only if it is external to the transformer, and can support
without saturation the voltage due to "resonant rise".  In the
case of an NST, for example, with magnetic shunts the core will
saturate at some voltage at most a couple of times the design
voltage (make that at most a few times).
