I think that the split between Moscow and Constantinople was more of a political issue having to do more with the politics of Ukraine and not so much with "doctrinal continuity".

Schism over political issues is a far greater scandal than schism over doctrinal issues.  It just proves that the churches aren't really one, if they can be fully separated by feeble jurisdictional spats every few decades.

If the Episcopal Church and the ELCA, which have no political unity, can agree that they believe the same doctrine and be in sacramental communion, yet remain separate churches, then doctrinal unity of the Orthodox is in no way proof of their own ecclesial unity.
