English Mild is definitely not my thing (along with many other English beers).
Maybe, you're on to something.

Don't forget the large doses of sulfites in the casks...Or so I have heard.

No, I am certainly not..I know little about English beer. I thought I heard somewhere in passing that it was either added to the casks to clean and it made its way into the beer, or it was added..I have no idea, for certain though.

I have been step feeding...we've had many a discussion about that and it makes sense. And, cold side reactions occur much slower, so there is more grace against oxidation issues.

Step feeding? As in...

* 3 ppm o2
* Wait an hour
* 3 ppm o2
* wait... repeat until 12 ppm total?

I aerate using a 1 micron stone attached to an aquarium pump with an inline HEPA filter and flow control valve.

I set the flow to deliver 2-3 ppm oxygen per hour to the wort. I first mix the yeast in, then set the pump going. I'll usually keep it running for about 4 hours.
