The best solution will have to be easy to implement and cheap. Otherwise, the benefits will dimish to the point that it won't make sense to modify CIS if the level of effort and expense gets close to the implementation of EFI.
I agree.
I suspect the mass of the metering plate would be based on the same principle of a lightweight flywheel.... inertia. The mass of the plate tends to dampen subtle variations of air flow over the plate for smoother fuel metering.
