I don't agree with much, if anything, that you wrote. I've been using anti-seize for a lifetime of wheelbuilding (40+ years) and have yet to have a nipple seize. As far as I'm concerned if you need loctite for its locking properties you're not tensioning the spokes enough. And lubes that are designed as lubes lube better than anything else.

And the anecdote of needing loctite because we might have to ride tireless is just too much.

What grade?

wrong. as the wheel changes shape during extreme events, tension can be completely removed from the nipple. this will allow the nipple to rotate if not locked.

depends on how much you like to walk.
