............. and the roller portion of chain will not ride in the bottom of the sprocket but will pull up and curve the sprocket teeth towards direction of travel.
I agree with pretty much everything you said. I also believe chain stretching plays a significant roll in the rollers riding high on the teeth and bending them over.

And I think, but am not sure, that the teeth for the drive sprocket (front) will bend over in the opposite direction than the teeth of the driven sprocket (rear). Can anyone confirm or refute this?

makes sense, the forces are opposite to each other
