I prefer to look at back stance as a transitory stance, ie: I don't hang out there very long. I use it to shift backward from a more forward stance (or as a full step back), but then my retaliation is instant, whether it be keri waza or not.

I don't think the stance is the key here. I think the idea is transitioning from a defensive attitude to an offensive one, and that is what your instructor wants to pull out of you.

Kicking from the back stance is a legitimate technique. In the Chinto kata, there are about three front kicks with all the body weight is on the back leg. That was why I told you earlier to trust the instruction you are getting. You may be questioning the legitimacy of their instruction, because it is different rom the way you are aacustomed to training. If you train it long enough, it will feel natural to you.
