It's quite possible that I'm incorrect about the wizzer remaining rigid. It probably starts out that way, then goes into breakup but at a much higher frequency than the main cone. I can imagine the unterminated edge of a wizzer cone causing problems. Some of the better designs put a curl in the edge which probably introduces some much-needed stiffness there.
So far I haven't seen any distortion or stored energy tests on wizzer cones (nor much on other cones for that matter) - do you have any links?
In my experience with fullrange drivers, "shout" can be tamed by equalization. There are other issues which cannot.
