It seems to me that even while maintaining that classic shotokan form on the exterior, there's a lot of internal learning to be done as well. At my level, my external form is hopefully pretty similar to the mold, but I can feel that I've got a long way to go before fully understanding why that form is correct and has come to be in the first place.

Its a good question about at what level of training you begin to experiment or stylize or at what point what you are doing maybe isn't something others would call Shotokan. Straight through Shodan I was pretty much only concerned with getting my external form looking good and close to resembling my seniors.
