I believe that the Corums have a few papers floating around about this; they reference slow-wave propagation (the wave which appears to propagate up and down the coil itself).
a) the wire doesn't need to be 1/4 wavelength long for that.. it's more
treating the secondary as a transmission line (with distributed L and C)
rather than a lumped component.
b) The Corums approach works, but is, in my opinion, adding complexity
where it's not needed. A lumped model works with sufficient precision
that mechanical construction tolerances are probably a bigger factor.
