Nice point Jikan, Ryogen did want to strengthen scholarship on the Lotus Stutra; who are the Tendai priests today who specialize in Lotus Sutra studies?

Namu Myoho Renge Kyo
The gist of these passages is that the Buddha's practice as the cause and His virtue as the effect are altogether contained in the five characters of "Myo-ho ren-ge kyo". If we uphold the five characters, the merits of those cause and effect are naturally transferred to us. (NOPPA D2, P146)

Groner also does a good job showing the history of esoteric practice in Tendai-shu, among other things. That book corroborates much of what you've been saying in this thread.
Fast and bulbous. Tight also.
