You know what, in many ways you don't have this thread topic wrong, you just bring up a great aspect to the discussion that hasn't really been touched on.
I think many people DO get their heads around synthesis starting with softsynths (becuase they are a bit cheaper, an easier entry point, etc) And then, like you point out, when they do move on to hardware, they have a solid understanding and foundation.
So, no worries mate. Good discussion.
