Keep in mind that daily standups are not inherent to Agile. Nowhere in the Agile Manifesto is anything like a standup mentioned. That was an idea added later that caught on. As I mentioned in the OP, a team can meet together once a week, and then ad hoc peer-to-peer discussions as needed the rest of the week. Even though the standup might occur first thing, you still lose all that accumulated time each week that could be focused on productive work.

I am sure there are use cases where a daily standup is needed. My contention is that in most cases they are not, if the team and the project are managed differently.

Is it possible that the same redirections could have occurred had team members communicated, peer-to-peer, in real time instead of waiting for a standup? In my experience, yes. In your and other's experience, only you can say.
