Love this article and something that's been floating around in my head for some time.  I suppose I can begrudgingly accept the rational as to why wide range cassettes exist.  They're basically a one size fits all solution that fit the needs of newbies, weekend warriors, different fitness levels, and varying torque requirements associated with different wheel diameters.    For myself,  I'm perfectly ok with a 42 top end on a 29" wheel with 1200 gram + tires and it would be awesome to have a modular drivetrain that was 5 speeds for all the reasons listed.
