No actually, I think this is the right direction for this thread to

Not sure. When I looked into this for OcclusionQueryNode, I was just 
following the existing coding pattern for core OSG nodes. Most of them 
had the bulk of their cull traversal functionality in the 
CullVisitor::apply() for that particular node type, and did not override 
the traverse() member function.
