There isn’t a pilot shortage at the Legacy level. They can still afford to be picky.

Envoy, that's how it's done here. KV is a computer based test, SV/PV is your oral including systems and FM1.

Each AQP program is different. Some even exclude maneuvers like steep turns in the MV checkride. Some just need steep turns trained to proficiency. Their MV focuses on manuevers an airline pilot does.

Xjet can’t be on a AQP for the Ejets yet for initial, right?

We don't do steep turns at all actually.
Not a maneuver you do in a transport category jet, so why bother.

Given that history does not know of a single event when a steep turn would've helped, I'm not sure if it's really relevant training.

Are you speaking for your Ejet program? Is it AQP?

What “manuevers” do you do if not even steep turns?
