To me, an excess of low treble is more bothersome than upper treble, because that's where the ear is more sensitive. And I agree that Dynaudio tweeters get directional in the top octave, more so than a lot of 1" domes. Regarding the Focus 160s, I think the low treble is just right. What I'm hearing as a little brightness on axis is probably a little higher, maybe around 5 KHz and up, and using less toe-in does seem to bring it into balance.
