I think your second point is actually dangerous advice and it's one of the reasons I prefer Nick Ienatsch's book [1] and the Yamaha Champions [2] school to Keith Code/CSBS. You don't want to be adding throttle and lean angle at the same time and accelerating through a turn gives you less options to deal with mid-corner surprises. You can add throttle as you stand the bike up and drive out of the corner.

Even on the road it's safer to trail the front brake into corners and keep weight on the front tire. Keeping the front suspension compressed will also make the bike turn better. None of the fast guys ride the way Code describes [3]. You can see Marc brake all the way to the apex with zero throttle.
