There's probably an optimum spacing of points at areas of high rate of
change of slope.  Perhaps an email to Dean Straw might be in order?

I know Dean scans the Towertalk digest periodically, but he is definitely the guy to ask.

For whatever it's worth, you can use Microdem to generate terrain profiles of any point spacing you want, though of course you would have to merge and edit manually and limit the total number of points.
