Great article (as is usually the case). One other point worth mentioning is the use of "avot" in the phrase "pirkei avot." Though it usually ends up translated "ethics of the fathers" or something similar, "avot" in this context doesn't refer to the Sages, the Patriarchs or anyone else. Here it means something like "first principles," mirroring the usage in "avot melakha." So, "pirkei avot" should be read better as "chapters of foundational [ethical] principles."
