What you are saying makes perfect sense, but I'll go one step further with that idea.subtleties of other tonal properties don't mean much when you play higher gain.
... what an electric guitar sounds like acoustically.
IMNSHO, the acoustic properties that help while playing the clean to edge of breakup "hairy" tones, can actually DETRACT from the performance in higher gain situations. For thiose tones I find that the stiffer, heavier Norlin type guitars really shine in that space. They are clearer in tone and can make for very punchy tones that aren't "mushy" like many desribe the more resonant type Les Pauls.
