Another advantage to consider: you can begin shooting at any point during the push. Executed well, the muzzle is in line with the target the entire time. When you reach full extension, any error in movement or timing is in line with the target.
Swinging the gun to the target: the rotational inertia means more adjustments to get the muzzle stopped on the target. It is more likely to swing high or adjust low. Swinging the barrel works well on moving targets, but you need to be swinging in the same plane as the movement of the target (think skeet shooting).
Swinging the barrel up can still work. Plenty of modern cowboy shooters use it one handed. We should be realistic about the gives and takes of different techniques.
The mind is the limiting factor

Step 0- I shoot a modified Weaver, so my body is angled towards the target and not perpendicular (like it would be for iso).
Step 1- Draw gun from holster with strong side hand.
Step 2- Rotate gun towards target.
Step 3- Move gun roughly in front of belly button where is grasped by support hand.
Step 4- Lift and extend simultaneously keeping gun pointed nominally at target.
Step 5- Complete sight alignment and fire.
I am not bringing the gun to my nipples then pressing out, nor "swinging" it up to the firing plane from some low extended ready position.
