    I know of no better way to actually determine progress.

    Read carefully what you just wrote. I think you answered your own question.

    NO!

    Strain tears your lip. If you don't feel strained at your current mouthpiece position (you can slur easily, slot accurately and hit the mouthpiece the next day with the same response) then you will not tear your lip. And that's not just lip service. That's sound medical advice.

    Is that muscular strain or the kind of stress caused by the pressure of the rim against the teeth?

    Good point. I am referring to muscular strain. However if indeed the pressure against the teeth is severe enough, this would cut off circulation to the muscle which indirectly, would utimately (ultimately) result in muscular strain.
