I think you're right in that we never get called by worse. Now that I think about it, the only real advantage to a shove over a bet/call is we have some fold equity against a (very) strangely played AA. If 99 is in his range, it's probably a wash on both strategies.
Alright, that tangent aside, please allow me to show you my inner nit: I think I'd check/call a small bet and check/fold a large bet on the flop. If I thought I could get to a very cheap showdown, great, but I'm not willing to commit my stack to this pot on the flop.
I submit myself to a beating with the lag bat now.
