 That's where park and ride comes into the picture, it includes a too static phase that produces exactly what I just described, and in some higher end cases too much movement to compensate for the earlier lack of movement. I guess the question is do you want to actively balance on a continual basis, or is intermittent balancing enough. I say stay active and your accuracy will improve since you aren't taking time off during a turn. Save the time off for the lift ride.
I've noticed an increased sense of control when I'm making dynamic turns compared to when I'm taking it easy.  I've even compared doing the same radius turns dynamically and not, and I notice this control thing.  This is odd, and I'm wondering if this is part of what people are aware of when they promote continual movement rather than parking through part of the turn.  Could this sense of control be something like the control you have when riding a bicycle with some speed compared to trying to stay balanced when you bring the bike's speed down close to zero?
