Interesting discussion.  So how does a "slit" at the ridge of a diaphragm
differ from unblocked sheathing edges on the same roof?

Tom,  The big difference that I see is that the framing is continuous under unblocked edges typically, so it can act as a shear splice where at hips and ridges you don't have continuous members underneath you have skimped tonailed butt joints.
