Don't you think, though, that it might be a lot simpler than that?

Orion is by far the most prominent constellation in the sky. Shining high and bright on a crisp, clear, winter's night, even a casual observer can't fail to be impressed by the brightness of its corner stars and the slant of its belt. Along with Sirius, and the stars that form the winter hexagon, it stands without comparison as the most eye-catching sight in the sky. I can't see how this CAN'T be an important factor in its prominence.
