I give my quilts a shake before deploying them hopping to minimize the "migration" factor. If your down is clumping up or migrating, cold spots would be a problem at the lower temps. I am not sure about bang for the buck on the "bit of extra loft" or the additional weight. I, like many, have paid a price to shave an oz. If 1 oz got me 5 more degrees of comfort, I would consider it, especially if I were doing the winter camping thing. For three season, not so much.
When I talked with Adam about over stuffing in my quilts, he seemed fairly neutral about it, but based on what I was asking about thought I would be just fine with the standard stuff.
