Your point is valid if you are a Hooter Shooter. The point is we humans are not Hooter Shooters. We can and do make mistakes and have breakdowns in our form. This is where the longer bow will shine in comparison to the short one. The longer bow will not MOVE as much as the shorter one when we make slight mistakes.
There's always the analogy of tightrope walkers. Why do they use a long pole to help with balance? Simply because the ends, being farther from the center, are harder to move so it stays balanced better with less effort from the user. Just a matter of physics.
The same laws of physics apply when having a heavier bow and/or longer stabilizers. As mentioned, too, is brace height. Nobody has mentioned riser geometry, but this plays a major role also. Less reflex means less potetial for torque. It's not all one thing that plays a role in producing accuracy. It's the whole shooting setup. The less a bow can move at the shot the more accurate it will be in the hands of a shooter.
