I've been a wrench since way back when, I did this in the name of reliability, serviceability and to get past some shortcomings of standard shocks.  This shock can be serviced, all the way to the oil and shims with tools you should already have, the most esoteric being a Schrader valve core remover, and the seals are all available at (good) hardware stores. I wrote a big ol' thing about it at [****]( (under the INTEGER heading). There's another even bigger write up about it on Beta. I guess this could potentially be bad if you're currently turning wrenches for work as people might repair at home, but I doubt it will put anyone out of work. There will always be folk who don't want maintain their bikes.
