Making your battery cycle properly despite useage pattern

Give what a break? You asked for opinions, we're just discussing pro's & con's.
Being hostile won't help you.
Deleting your posts also doesn't help other reader understand the situation.
Full cycling your cells is more likely to harm them.
It also leave you with only partial capacity available.
I run my LiFePo4 banks charged to max 3.41V which is just under where I find the cell voltages tend to jump up from, ie it's at the top end of the flat part of the curve.
My thoughts are to keep the cells on the "flat/linear part" of the charge/discharge curve & not into the curving up/down ends where the chemistry is obviously doing something else.
We asked for sources as there's mis-information out there too.

Take your own advise...

Number of cycles and depth of cycle are two very different things.  What you propose sounds worse overall.  Even if it did matter, for what type of gains.

Classic overthinking.

Whether or not float charging Li-ion is worse for heath than some (shallow) cycling cannot be answered without much further context, since the answer depends on many parameters, such as the cycling window location, float voltage, temperature, chemistry, rate, etc.
