I agree with a lot of what you say. I am sure that there are those that "wallow" in it as you mention.

If our sin debt is paid in full, why do you ask for forgiveness?
Everytime you ask for forgiveness is Jesus going to be crucified again?What do you do if you forget a sin? Isn't that a lot like what God said about the 10 Commandments, in that, if you don't do all of them perfectly, all the time, then you are still in sin?
If you are going to ask for forginess, I think you would have to do it every day, I just don't see us getting by one day witout some sort of sin in our lives.
God looks at us and sees no sin because he sees Jesus Christ and in him ( and he in us) we are Righteous, Holy and Blameless not of our own accord, because not one, no not one of us are worthy. It is just like it is not our fruits (works) but the one who lives in us that we bear.
I see too many people that are in bondage because of asking for forgiveness; they have a bad or negative feeling (unclean) if they don't do it every day, or they are forgetting some or they haven't asked it in a while.
I think that one of the truths that sets you free, is the "Finality of The Cross"... why ask God for what he has already done?
I would rather live in the peace that, the one who lives in me, will let me know when I have done wrong and will convict me to make it right, otherwise, I know I have already been forgiven. It's not that we are perfect but the one inside of us all is perfect.
It's not that I don't care about sin, I do and I hate it. And it's not that I don't look at, when I see it I do but, it's that God said he wouldn't look at it any more!
