What happens with a lot of people is that they let the inside ski lead too much, putting the calf muscle in contact with the back of the cuff of the boot. If you think about it, if you were to immediately pressure that ski from the position you're in, your weight will be behind your foot, and it will be very difficult to turn.
What you need to do, is, as you are finishing a turn, take that uphill/inside foot, and pull it back enough that your shin makes fairly firm contact with the tongue of the boot (don't try to bend the boot). Then, as the pressure moves to that new turning ski (now considered the outside ski of the new turn), you'll be properly balanced over it and the skis will turn much more easily and go where you want them to go. When you pull that uphill/inside foot back, it will still have some tip lead. You don't want to try to pull it back so much that it doesn't lead the other foot.
You're first paragraph confused me, after rereading 4-5 times I think I understand what you are trying to communicate and if I do then I agree with you.
However to improve what you are trying to say in your first paragraph if you would have said "When we ski and are moving out of the fall line... " instead of across the fall line I would have understood you the first time I read it. You see, when you said "moving across the fall line" I thought transition between turns, hence the confusion, then you said at 2/3 through the turn and this seemed to be you arguing with yourself and added more confusion, I finally decided you meant 2/3 through the turn after the skis leave the fall line. I agree once I understand what you meant.
Try half of your normal ski lead at first, do not make it go to zero as would be the case in the old monoski. I find most folks have too much ski lead in their turns and that includes myself often enough but when I become conscious of it I cut my lead in half and that will come really close to putting it where it needs to be.
Be sure to have fun with it though!
