First of all, love your post!

Do you know if you have the Knox bootloader? You can check by booting into download mode, if there is a line with Knox void 0x0, then you will do and unfortunately you can't download using official firmware.

If you root/flash custom recovery you can downgrade using custom ROMs but you will void the knox warranty.

Are you experiencing problems or having any particular issues with 4.3? Why do you want to downgrade?

Yes the security Samsung introduced with Knox caused a lot of issues for some people. Luckily I am still on the old (MGA) pre-knox bootloader, but running a rooted stock based 4.4.2 ROM and can go back to official 4.2.2 if need be. So it really just depends on whether you value the knox warranty or prefer just to go ahead and root and enjoy the features that come with it.
