I agree it's not anything to do with what was present in this secret.
I think the fact that the Ring was taken from Siegfried doesn't preclude Tolkien using it in a way that draws on WWI and WWI experiences and tropes. It can be more than one thing at the same time. for me, the fact that it's more than one thing at the same time is part of what makes LOTR so good.
And it's not just the ring but the settings and experiences around the whole ring journey. Just a lot of things drawing on those ideas.
anyway this is a minor disagreement with your very reasonable and sane ideas, i want to be clear about that
