Re: how does this shim stack look
the best mod anyone can do to the forks is to increase the travel it is the equivalent of increasing engine displacement.... without adding any mass to the reciprocating parts.
if you got 315mm out of them and went back to the 0.46 springs I think that would be the best possible platform to start dialing in. you would have the plushness of 0.46s and the bottoming Resistance of 0.50s
on an "easier" level I think it is likely that increasing the amount the MV can flex or if it is a check plate creating one that can flex would be a good improvement.
regarding what I think about your ideas to soften the BV I think they are good but it is likely that addressing the MV will eventually yield a nicer result
also check the preload on the springs and look at oil levels if you haven't done before
