Re: The idea of partitioning Germany following World War I

I think you are failing to take into account three factors:
First, the interpretation of the principles behind Wilson's Fourteen Points leading to the readjustment of frontiers along "clearly recognizable lines of nationality" led to the movement to consolidate German-speaking Austria within a German Republic (prevented, of course by the Treaty of Saint-Germain of September 1919) - i.e., the tendency to consolidate (along national boundaries, rather than supra-national), rather than separate, that governed the peacemaker's decisions.
