Pleasure reading your very well researched work, dear brother.  Thoroughly illuminating and I hope our readers take note of it too.

The medieval period defined as "wise Muslim intellects v/s. the not-too-wise religious jurists" is one of the most significant and real aspects of our history, the final straw that broke the camel's back.  Unfortunately it's the influence of the latter that pervades.    

Let's take a quick look at some very important historical dates, starting from the passing of the beloved Final Messenger (pbuh):

-  Death of the beloved Prophet (pbuh) 632 AD.
-  Death of Imam Ali ending the Rashidoon era (the four righteous Caliphs) in 661 AD.
-  Same year in 661 AD began the Ommayad rule its capital in Damashq (hereditary system of governance not indicated nor encouraged in the Quran) which lasted for the next 89 years or so until 750 AD.
-  Abbasid rule started 750 AD with Baghdad as its capital after overthrowing the Ommayads in Damascus.  Abbasid rule ended 1258, replaced by the Mamluks in Egypt.  
-  In 750 AD a small remnant of the Ommayads that left for Spain (Cordoba) began the Muslim rule in Spain in 756 AD though they continued to recognize Baghdad as the center of the Muslim rule for the next 300 years approximately until the Nassrids in Cordoba became independent of Baghdad.  Muslim rule in Spain (Al-Andalus) ended in 1492 after the violent takeover by Catholic fanatics, Isabella and Ferdinand.
-  Just for information, the Ottoman rule was founded in 1299 AD in Anatolia (Turkey) in the city of Bursa.  It ended 1923.

Around 750 AD was also the period of the start of Islamic Renaissance.  But something else started too to thwart it.

Having said that, let's check when the "imam" culture kicked in.

Hanafi -  born 700 AD  in Kufa. 
Malki  - born 711 AD in Medinah.
Shafi -  born 767 AD  in Gaza, lived in Egypt.
Hanibali -  born 780 AD in Baghdad, spent time in the Hejaz region.

Bukhari born 810 AD.
Muslim bin Hajaj  born 817 AD.
Tirmidhi  born 824 AD.

If you take a quick glance on the birth dates of those four imams and then Bukhari and his two successors, you will see that they all fit right into the midst of the Ommayad and Abbasid rules, the exact period when the practice of hadith narration began, followed by its compilation.  It was the period when this entire culture of man-written religious laws got started and thrived with huge introductions of extra-Quranic laws and a gradual attitude of neglect towards the Quran.  Unarguably, it initiated the destruction of TRUE Islam. 

Madhab ( مذهب‎ ) in Arabic refers to 'school of thought.'   The existence of four madhabs  (Hanafi, Malki, Shafi and Hanibali) is an acknowledgement of four schools of thought within Fiqh or Islamic Jurisprudence.  That, automatically and logically implies divisions.  Apparently one cannot say that all four schools are identical otherwise there would be no need to create that many schools of thought.  However, though an individual is entitled to their own interpretations of the Quran, they are not authorized to officially establish 'schools of thoughts' in writing as such ideas can only lead to splits and discord within the Muslim society.  It's precisely what the four madhabs ended up doing.  It was further manipulated by the Wahabs and their likes in the coming years much later.  I'm aware many will disagree.  They claim that the founders of these four madhabs were simply disciplinarians.  Maybe their intent wasn't as hurtful as it turned out to be, but they did set the ball rolling.  Whether advertently or inadvertently, they did help to keep the door open for feud, disunity and schism which only carried Islam farther and farther from the Great Quran.   Claiming to make Islamic law extracted from the Quran and "Sunnah," the addition of Sunnah is the real detrimental catch.   It's an open secret that "Islamic laws" constructed by Muslim jurists from the 8th century contained little or nothing of the Quran but plenty of creations of the human mind in the name of "sunnah," largely a set of unauthentic stories forged using the Prophet's (pbuh) name, then formulated into Islamic law called Sharia, which expanded with detailed explanations as Fiqh.

There can be no universal tafsir of the Quran.  This has been declared by The Almighty in Verse 3:7 and more, that include Verses 17:84 (already quoted) and Verses 75:16-19 that say "Stir not your tongue herewith to hasten it.  Lo! upon Us (rests) the putting together thereof and the reading thereof.And when We read it, follow you the reading;  Then lo! upon Us (rests) the explanation thereof."  (75:16-19)  Al-Qaiamah. 

Clear Revelations are the clear Commandments of Allah which are obligatory to follow.  But even in regard to the allegorical Verses, no one can claim to confirm their explanations.  One can express an opinion, but it must be viewed only as an opinion, not a confirmation.  Confirmation is with Allah only.  "He it is Who has revealed unto you (Muhammad) the Scripture wherein are clear revelations - they are the substance of the Book - and others (which are) allegorical. But those in whose hearts is doubt pursue, forsooth, that which is allegorical seeking (to cause) dissension by seeking to explain it. None knows its explanation save Allah."  (3:7).   

It just shows and proves how profoundly those hadith quibblings and babblings have misguided so many among us. 

I seek refuge in Allah alone.
