Obviously this profile will never find its way anywhere near being used for
the Cross Section module.

One more method.
If you are only interested in the profile place, points with a constant
elevation around the center line shots. make a breakline of the centerline
shots then create a surface. the surface will be accurate at the centerline
only!. Then pull the profile.
I teach surveying and use this method to create a profile and cross sections
from level notes. As long as you create breaklines using "good" data then
the sections and profiles will be accurate.
