I vote for sloppy valve stem seals/guides. What you described is a valve stem seal problem right on the money. Idling is a high vacuum condition for the engine. Most oil is most drawn during these high vacuum conditions past the leaky valve stem bores. When you punch the gas, this oil gets burned up until the next stoplight.
