    I don't know about any refutation but the only time you don't get to use the setup is when White wants an endgame.

     

    I believe you should play Nd7 before e5 to avoid exchanging queens.

    Nope, I believe that runs into f4 and the exchange of queens is not to be feared at all, not a way for white to play for advantage at all!
