Iver rejects the Deictic Center position altogether, which I note you accept, as do I. What I'm mystified by is Porter's grasp of deictic indicators AND his rejection of the temporal nature of the Indicative verb system. I think this is why he has not gained a large following. He has to resort to other linguistic phenomena and whatever those are, they are not intuitive or convincing.
