Bill,

I found this fascinating article which discusses CBN vs diamond, primarily for grinding operations. It describes the chemical structures and how both behave with different materials at high temperatures. It does talk a little about using fluids for lubrication but it's not about honing or the loading problem you mention. It still might be worth reading for inquiring minds:
