Rodinal will not exhaust under any conditions when used at the proper concentration: minimum 10ml of concentrate per 80 square inches of film (1 roll 35mm etc).

Where did that come from? What constitutes a "batch"? And what does "the first 1/2 of development" mean?

With continuous agitation you will not get any compensating effect, but that's true of all developers.

Rodinal has been my main developer for over 50 years, and I've never encountered a problem with it when used per the directions.

Of course there are always folks who think they know more than the manufacturer.
