I think the benefit for a lump 20% bonus vs. stacks of 2% handled individually would maybe show a bit stronger if we assumed non-resilient (losing 5%) as well as opponent using a non-protected energy type (i.e. Disruptors vs. your Res A shield, which loses another 15%).
But as my OP already discounts EPTS 1 and takes 0 shield power into consideration, this is already unrealistic enough.
I'll probably continue to calculate it as 2% stacks vs. a single lump of 20% (or 10% for 5 stacks), but that's just my gut feeling on how it's probably handled.
