(I'm trying to think of which of my
previous engines had the alignment pins in the ring channels
that stopped rotation of the rings and so would allow
true[er] 'bedding in' 

  Last and only ones I can think of is two cycle motorcycle engines.  You 
need to prevent ring rotation with cylinder ports or you can catch an end 
in the port.  The pins keep the ring ends where there's a continous, in-line 
cylinder surface.
