Thank you for posting this, A. I tend to agree with your assessment. I have not looked into this area of the world, but your arguments are sound and valid.

You read my post on Sarah's LJ so you know my thoughts. In the 14th century manuscript illuminations, we don't see photo-realistic detail like we see in the late 15th century pictures you show here. And when the extant record contradicts it too, I think there's a false lead being followed for the 14th century.
