1) We did use our bodies in Chi Sau. Power generation as I was taught in WC was about transfer of an explosive movement from the back leg more than using hip rotation. This was also used in a less explosive way to drive people where you wanted them to go when you had them trapped (we used to bang each other into walls to make a point). In the tai chi I've been taught there's far more expansive movements with use of body rotation for power.
Nice post. I also think this is the main flavor difference overall, straight line vs Torque. Each having some of the other, but ....
