Current value is chosen between maintaining "100%" of IPD and getting nice depth feel, because it's vastly diminished upon IPD relax, everything look almost completely flat, but I probably went a little too hard on it.
That's excellent. It's obvious you put a lot of thought into this. I actually would suggest it's not relaxed enough, not that you went too hard on it. I assume you are moving the IPD closer to zero when zoomed in a la monoscopic display, just to avoid going cross-eyed? I still felt cross-eyed looking at something too close to my face so maybe just a little bit more of the relaxing thing would help (for me).

I didn't set it to instantaneous zoom though because it feels wrong and it's very disorienting. I'll see what else I could do with that.
I agree with your approach to this, and perhaps it's only because the end result of going cross-eyed and/or having to refocus so much that I feel like it's too fast. Should be interesting to see!

Aha! Then that alleviates any concern I had for that. Nice thinking.
