Such reasoned and well thought out discussion points thrown out on NANOG?

Uhhh, so what if they do? Nobody is forcing you to use new.net, or ORSC
or TINC or whoever, or even setup your own roots with the "pick of the 
bunch" from ORSC or TINC or whoever.

If you don't use the alternative roots, you're not affected by their 
existance...  so you can just pretend they don't exist and live life in
your 2826 compliant happy world.
