What was I thinking - of course that's the right way to attach it and the way I do it too (I have a Markins plate on my 70-200 VRII).

Agreed. This is a bit of a pain as one has to remove the grip and then attach the plate, only then can one mount the camera to the tripod. So much for "quick release".

In any case, even if I wanted to, my Markins plate for my D7000 doesn't fit onto the bottom of the grip.

> The AF/AE L button changed to AF-On with each of the grips is

This is crucial for me as I use AF-On to focus.

One thing I've noticed is that when spinning the grip to vertical orientation, I have no instinctive idea as to where to place my eye. This will come with only a few days more use.
