And in upgrades, and thus have experience with the difference in
effort and results....

And you still have yet to explain what you think the result of the
extra hours of downloading and work has gained compared to a clean
install and copying your data back.   As far as I can see, it is a
bunch of orphaned files, a wildly fragmented disk layout, and probably
a less efficient filesystem.   This is especially true since you
mentioned having several disks, one probably large enough to hold a
complete backup of the old system disk so you could easily pick out
what you want back in the new install.
