I usually adjust my front diff settings before I try really hard front springs. It works better for my driving style, and allows me to apply more power earlier.
Also, your explanation of the effect of springs doesn't take into account for springs that are too soft, which could lead to a car that pushes too much or other strange things.
With my old rs4, I preffered to have the same tire all around, have green springs in front, orange or yellow in the rear with a pretty tight front diff.
This might only be the case with the old rs4, but it usually wanted to drift around corners and kept doing that upon exit, this stopped some of that tendency.
