I've never experienced a pre-conical front brake, but I agree with your assessment.
I had the drum on my '72 T150V, totally inadequate. I swapped the disc front end from my A65 onto the Trident. Conical was just fine on the A65.
BTW: The Trident still features the caged ball head bearings. So far so good, but those bearings are very expensive. I'll convert to rollers when they wear out. The OIF already has roller bearings.
