Although I haven't followed the complete discussion, I would like to
give a remark:
the phase-velocities of the even- and odd-mode of a two-wire system
are identical, if and only if the surrounding dielectric is homogeneous.
This is the case if the two wires are placed inside a homogeneous
dielectric between two conducting (GND/VCC) plates. This is not the
case for a two-wire microstrip-structure.
