Interesting discussion could be ended if someone just did a quick experiment or two.

Take a new cable and measure it, marking the length at the point of the cable clamp. Install it, and "stretch" it (excuse me: bed in the housing stops) then remove the inner and re-measure it. What will we find? I expect the next bicycle quarterly to have a full summary...
