I agree w your logic, and shove big pairs alot against non-regs cuz I think some players think it looks like AK and expect to get called by worse alot - but I'm not sure that level of thinking applies to most players. I see ss's shoving big pairs, and some medium stacks, but mostly see KK+ being 4bet to 3x the 3bet give or take, and frequently see AK/AQ being shoved like this.
Regardless, I usually want to see villain showdown one of his shoved hands before I start acting on this assumption, and an utg supernit isn't a great candidate imo.
