Does the diaphragm stiffness affect response when it's desired to _open_
the wastegate?  That is, is it like a friction effect which induces lag
in the control loop?  OTOH, if it acts like a pure spring (and if the OE
diaphragm contributes no spring rate), seems like the effective rate of
the wastegate spring in series w/ the diaphragm would be reduced?  I'm
on shaky ground here...
