So the SZ 14's are a good PMTS ski, and the SZ 12's are less desirable but OK? Or is the binding difference great enough to eliminate them altogether?

The SZ 12's are easy to find and relatively cheap.

I've been skiing the SZ12 this season. I've never been on the 14. I really like this ski, especially it's ability to do almost everything well.
Great grip, not too stiff, and even skis powder well considering it's size. I've done several foot+ days with no complaints.
You can shim the mounting plate that the binding slides on if you fell it's needed. I've got 2mm in mine.

Thanks CO_Steve, very helpful. Looking to replace my Fischer Progressor 8 with something more substantial - I find a 72mm WW a good all rounder in Tahoe when we have some snow :?

How hard is shimming the plate? I've never mounted/unmounted bindings.

So the binding pieces move independently. Each will slide off the track. The track is attached with four screws in the heel area. Take them out and add a shim to the back two. Depending on how much you shim you may need longer screws.
