I agree that the things that you mentioned are more important but the longer you go solving on white (or any color), the harder it is to become color neutral.

There's most likely more to it than that. More likely because you are color neutral you are more aware of your cross solutions. CN on it's own will not make you 1-2 seconds faster unless your cross is already really slow.

you average 15 seconds, you average 17 seconds, you average 19 seconds. They don't mean anything. It's all bragging rights
At higher levels, yes, 1-2 seconds mean something.

Asher Kim-Magierek is a white only solver, and he's pretty fast, and Max Siauw is white/yellow.
I think dual CN should be worth because sometimes you have bad white cross solutions but full CN not really.

I became CN when I averaged 30-45 ish seconds and it took almost no effort because I wasn't that used to White anyway. If anybody wants to be CN. The best time to do it is now

But yeah CN makes cross+1 easier, but you have to decide your cross colour first.
However, CN's advantages rely exclusively on the inspection and thus the first part of the solve. Look-ahead will be slightly worse than single colour/dual CN. Also, remember that the 2019 3x3 world champion was a white cross solver and Tymon uses dual colour neutrality unless he finds a really easy cross on the other colours.
