I gave up on caring much about lag times a long time ago - just seemed to not matter much.  I never put a correlation together on using old yeast, but it makes perfect sense.  What I have found to be interesting is how little yeast slurry is needed when you are repitching directly from a first generation re-pitch and how quickly that gets started.  I find that to be shorter than when using a starter, though I have not measured it specifically - just my impression.
