...  One thing that almost clinches it is that seats behind the main stage (i.e., at the other end from the RZ) at various venues have "limited view", etc. warnings attached to them.  ...

 

Well, I really hope that is not the case because that warning wasn't in place for all sales. According to yours description (and others) Sec 120 for Vancouver looks like it could be behind the stage and there is no limited view notice for that section.

 

It really shouldn't requiring sleuthing to figure out if tickets are 100% view or not.

I agree completely--it should have been very clear--and it definitely hasn't been.  I don't typically gripe much about buying U2 tix, but on this issue I'm pretty bugged, I must admit.  It took me hours to figure this out; I'm sure many others would have been well-served by a clearer description.  Especially since it might be easy to assume (which appears to be wrong) that the RZs were by the main stage.

I would think from looking at other arenas, that the stage is opposite the redzones. So if you are on the sides near the redzone, u will be facing the stage

What s/he said.  See lengthy thread on this subject ("Stage Design") a few topics below this one.

I have RZ for LA1 and even though I am excited to be so close without having to wait in line all day, I have to believe that RZ will be behind a "B" stage if following the San Jose map.  There's no way they would bump the hardcore GA'ers from the front of a main stage behind the RZ.  This layout totally makes sense with the relatively intimate component to the show.  

 

I can picture it now: Bono and Edge finish a 2-3 song acoustic set with Every Breaking Wave...Edge makes his way back to a piano on the main stage with Bono on a stool and spotlight on the "B" stage signing back to him. That's when the "B" stage becomes the Main Stage.  Then they bust out into Until the End of the World to give Bono time to get back to the main stage (and gives him a rest before playing the bull (haha)!  Can't wait!

 

I really like that IE stage rendering as it will feel Inner Circle-ish, yet not totally.  

 

At the end of the day, an NBA basketball court is 94 feet long, so at worst you have to figure in RZ or GA, you will be 50-100 feet away from all the action the entire show (probably A LOT less) so I'm pumped where ever I stand!!!

If you look closer to the San Jose picture, you can see there's 'band tech area' written at the 'stage' to the right (not the RZ side). 

 

So this might not be a stage but the place where the mixing desk is located and all guitars and other equipment is stored.
