Yes, what I was describing is 'bridged' operation, aka 'strapped' depending on which vernacular you want to use, but I don't recall seeing either term in any electronics text that I've ever read, and so regard them as somewhat less than formal. Push-pull, in the sense that one-half of the amp is swinging positive while the other is swinging negative is, I think, a valid description of the (proposed) circuit's operation. I don't recall that there is any limitation on circuit topology on the two halves of the circuit in qualifying for the use of the term push-pull.
As for the rest of what you said regarding the X-series--I couldn't agree more; you're just saying the same thing I was saying in different words. I thought that it was obvious that the Son of Zen was a simplified version of the X topology, in the same sense that the Zen is a simplified version of the Aleph topology. That's why I threw in the tongue-in-cheek remark about the resistor between the two halves.

I've created a monster. This was my first posting and I can't express how fantastic this is. Thank you all for your time and comments. A round table discussion via internet, I like it.
