No it is an argument for code base diversity (or better
software engineering).

Vendor diversity doesn't necessarily give you this, and you
can get this with
one vendor.
How so? Haven't we recently seen an across the board bug in
multiple version of $vendor code?
And that's evidence of what other than nobody is willing to pay for what it takes to get better code out of $vendor?

Code can be built better. It just isn't always economical to do so.
