Except the whole debate is about whether air squat form is, or is not, applicable to weighted squat form. And specifically, whether attempting to eliminate "buttwink" in air squats will overexaggerate the lumbar curve, leading to bad form on weighted squats.

If you don't *do* air squats then the question simply doesn't arise.
