Is in your view a dysfunctioning of the OHC's responsible for tinnitus (lack of efferent feedback)?

In cases of objective tinnitus, yes, sort of (the dysfunction may not be due to lack of efferent feedback); but in most tinnitus cases, probably no.

And related, is in your view a correct functioning of the OHC's responsible for spontaneous otoacoustic emissions?

Certainly; and I think everyone agrees.
