The quality of 9point8 stuff is very high, I haven’t installed one of their posts in ages but if the opportunity ever came up to test-write one I’d be in for sure - as you note, serviceability.  I love the fore/aft offset option too. I wish more companies did it both to accommodate riders who don’t love the steeper STAs on new bikes and riders looking for a more upright position on older bikes.  The low pressure is a great point too.  Insertion is fine, it’s just that nothing competes with OneUp’s collar-to-rail height which is really important in maximizing drop in a case like my kid’s. Or even on the large Titan where I could score an extra cm of drop over any other post and 2cm over many. Admittedly all less of an issue possibly on a small FS bike where the saddle v. tire contact comes into the equation.
