If v^2/r can be shown to reduce to v^2/2 then calculating pressure by Bernoulli from velocity relative to the wing makes sense. Otherwise, since relative to the wing does not reflect the actual fluid accelerations, it makes no sense al all.

Now I understand what you're getting at. I think the attached .pdf may answer your question. Thanks for sticking with this, I learned a lot by working through this...
