or maybe... MORE smooth? So perhaps the normals on LARGER triangles could be
*duplicated* in your summing process instead, to make their contribution have
more weight, resulting in a *less*-smooth result. Based on the size or computed
area of each triangle.

I apologize for just guessing about this, because I don't fully understand all
of the details of your idea.
