Maybe I should have one printed up.

Seriously, I have been flying and enjoying Swiss and its predecessor for years.

Never had a problem in C, flying with them at least twice a year with the same bags which are both within their size requirements.

My sense is that your observation on bulk is correct, that seeing one "large" bag (even though it is within size requirements) was a trigger as opposed to multiple soft sided backpacks or shoping bags that others boarded with.

It is also quite frustrating that on one leg of a codeshare you are welcomed without a problem and on the continuation your bag is objectionable. Had this been on an A320 I would have been more understanding, but on an A340 with much bin space we were surprised.

At least we were prepared. My wife and I carry a large plastic shopping back in each of our roll aboards and in such event can transfer our immediate needs to the plastic bags and check the rollaboards.

We intend to fly this routing again in 2 months. I think I will pack a tape measure in the bags next time
