Looking at a cut-a-way, it still appears to me that the front portion of the trans would have no lube. What did I miss?

Well to tow one it would be out of gear but since the rear end would be moving so would some gears in the transmission and those gears would throw oil up and around so nothing would be hurt by lack of oil. Works the same way as if you where pulling a car or truck with a stick shift and when you do that the transmission in that car/truck is not hurt but the rear end is still moving the drive shaft so then internal gears in that transmission is still moving and oil is thrown up and around those gears. Understand where I am coming from??

Yes. Then the only explanation for being able to fry and egg on the top of the transmission after flat towing was that it was low on fluid to start with.

Yes low on fluid or a bad bearing or other such thing.
