As I see it, in a mass-rich structure like this, the purpose of the RMH is to heat the mass, so that the mass can provide a nice air temperature for the occupants.
Overheating the air while striving to put more heat into the mass seems like a hint that less thermal transfer to the air inside is desirable; more of that heat needs to go into the mass directly. So, how does one design a RMH to do that?
Or, to take a different approach, having the RMH in an area that can be closed off from the rest of the living space could allow more pleasant temps in the other portion.
