    Hello.
    I would agree that more and further are superfluous here. It makes perfect sense to simply say: "Can you elaborate on your final point, please?" It seems that we AE speakers love to be redundant (especially of late).

    Well, you can elaborate on something, and then you can elaborate further on it.

    I think it's redundant with the first instance of elaboration, but for subsequent instances of elaboration you can use it.
