The notion that the difference in workmanship is a reflection of unintentional differences in the "quality" of work -- e.g., that it was inaccurate or sloppy -- is based on the presumption that what we see there today were the original final surfaces. I disagree with that notion. I see plenty of evidence that many surfaces that we see today in G1 were originally covered with other materials that were subsequently removed by pillagers and/or were hacked up beyond recognition (e.g., lower AP).

I disagree that earthquakes caused the block displacement we see in G1. I just don't see how the pattern of displacement supports that notion at all. The majority of block displacement in G1 is not focused around the QC, it's focused around the KC. That includes the walls of the KC, the cracks, chipping, etc., in the RCs above it, the shafts arising from both the KC and QC in the vicinity of the KC, and also the Antechamber/Great Step. In my opinion, the design of the RCs also supports the notion that it managed forces coming from below, in the KC, not from above.

In that regard, if any room can be speculated to be a "reaction chamber" I'd consider the KC to be a far better candidate than the QC.

The reason may people doubt that G1 was originally a tomb is simply that there isn't any hard evidence to support that hypothesis while there is much evidence contradicting it. Jon's analysis of the AP masonry is just the latest nail in that coffin.
