Good point, Denny. I haven't tried the "Trifecta" blend of AA, NaMeta and Brewtan B, so I can't say otherwise on AA. I agree with your general approach that if there isn't a problem perceived, then a solution should not be sought.
Having said that, I am one of the low-ox brewers for my lagers. They seem to have been well-received by my crew, so I will keep going with that process for now. I use preboiling, less than 25 ppm NaMeta and Brew Tan B, gentle dough-in with mashcap, modest stirring, subsurface RIMS return (Locline), lower boil rate (finishing with a 10 minute more intensive boil at the end to drive off DMS), lower fermentation temp, purged racking and storage at cold temps. The beers don't last six weeks, but that is because they have succumbed to glasses of my friends in that time. At some point, I may spund and even later on, use Sauergut, but I am happy with my results so far and they seem to be worth the small additional time invested.
