What I'm thinking now that I see it in photos is the more rapid decreases would have made a sharper V-neck, which I've lost a bit in doing it every other row, is that right?
Exactly right, that's the reason for decreasing every row, to get more of a V. Whether you prefer that way, or the way you've done it is up to you. It's perfectly fine to modify a pattern if you would like something else. Some decreases look okay if you do them every row in the same place others don't. Technically, they're not really in the same spot, because the dec moves over a stitch every row because of the decrease on the previous row. If you follow what I mean....

As to the hood and 3 needle BO, that's a great way to avoid sewing up. It makes just as sturdy a seam so go for it.
