Thank your for this informative and insightful piece. There is no doubt the expression "disruptive innovation" is overused and misused. However, I have found compelling arguments for disruptive technologies and business plan innovations by Stanford Lecturer on Disruption and author Tony Seba. Having examined disruptive innovations going back to Gutenberg's printing press, Seba articulates a strong case that when a 10X improvement occurs in a technology that is necessary but not sufficient for a disruptive change; it takes several such 10X improvements that converge and synergize which results in powerful disruptive changes. You can access his books and talks at http://tonyseba.com I would be interested in your assessment of Seba's arguments.
