When I've watched the New Year concert, or otherwise seen the Vienna Phil playing Strauss, it's become pretty obvious that the orchestra can play this music utterly standing on their head, and many of the usual forms of time-keeping are not at all necessary - so the conductor can indulge in all sorts of gestures to communicate a certain mood (I've seen this with Harnoncourt and Mehta in particular). To judge these things in general, though, I think one would have to compare how the conductor acted when this orchestra were playing other (preferably less familiar to them) repertoire? Just a thought...
