Indeed. Personally I prefer the upper / lower / major / minor system because it adds a bit more detail, but there's nothing wrong with using all upper / all lower / a mixture as long as it's clear what's going on.

Sure do. If the dominant tone is not in fact the dominant tone due to the tonic not being where you think it is, the argument is moot.

And if the tonic is where you think it is, and the dominant tone is definitely the dominant tone?

Sure. But this is not the case in your examples.

If you must have a minor chord built off the dominant , I'm under the impression this could only occur in a minor key. And that's about all I have to say about that

Yes I accept that it's not the case in the example I gave, but I didn't really want to get snarled up in that particular example - it was the general thrust of the "v-isn't-a-dominant chord" thing I was aiming at.

Ah well, I got snarled up anyway.

I'm going to go bang my head against the wall now.
