difficulty lining up loft paths

hello! ^w^

i'm working on a keyboard frame and running into a challenge with lofts. here is the current result i get, which is actually pretty close to what i want:

the problem for me is the spacing of the loft paths:

you can see above that it evenly spaces the paths along one side of the loft, which causes the paths to curve unnecessarily (for what i want). meanwhile, on the inside of the loft, it does what i want, because of the extra lines in the side wall:

i can't figure out how to get the extra reference points for the loft to use. and this is especially confusing to me because the sketch that generates those side walls does actually contain the individual segments:

i understand that it doesn't need to carry those lines into the extrude, but i don't get why it does it on the inside of the walls but not the outside, resulting in the top edges being broken up for the inside but one continuous edge for the outside.

i hope i'm making sense >_<. does anyone have any ideas for how i might supply the loft with additional points to use?
