<The whole rational for these schemes is to make sure that each battery receives exactly the same voltage as the others. But does anyone really think that there is a significant voltage drop between batteries?>

Who would care?

A batt charged at 14.15V will last as long and charge as well as one that receives 14.20V, so where is the problem?

To live long and prosper batts need to NOT be killed.

Low water , discharge deep, and let the batt sit for weeks , or over charging will kill batts faster than a 5 ft difference in their charge lead.
