Correct on both counts.

Thanks for the link to an interesting article.  Thankfully we are well
below 10GHz on this interface and have 0 stub length as our signals
traverse the via all the way from top to bottom or vice versa.  We do
have the option to specifically adjust the antipad or keepout sizes
around our vias.  More discussion of this topic in the upcoming
section on impedance.
