So my question comes down to whether the claim on OpenVPN's homepage that "tunnel traffic will immediately resume" just refers to the --ping-restart mechanism, or whether there is anything else which I can do in terms of configuration to ensure a quick resumption of tunnel traffic.

Tunnel traffic will immediately resume when using pre-shared keys (where no new negotiation is needed). This has some security pitfalls in comparison to RSA-based authentication and is incompatible with client/server mode.
