Everything you say is absolutely true, as long as
you never, ever, ever allow a cell to reverse charge.

If you do, it will grow a nickel dendrite through the
inter plate insulation, and become a dead short.

NiCds are more forgiving than the newer chemestries -- they can
be cold stored fully discharged. Or allowed to self discharge to
nothing, and when needed, you can still trickle charge them back up.

I find them to be optimal for sporadic use applications where
NiMh or Lithium chemistry batteries would be damaged by excessive
discharge.
