Proprietary system is not a problem at all if it is made with serviceability in mind. It it uses standard parts like bushings, seals etc. then any proper mechanic can work on it in 100 years from now. Monotube dampers are generally simple to work on. What is more, a design which is easy to service and tune is much better in the longer run then something like Fox twin tube which requires vacuum to bleed and needs a constant service. For me a good proprietary shock I can work and tune at home (and with cheap, available parts) is a selling point. What is not clear to me is the real benefits of this design, it simply should ride better then an average bike. Buying something simply because it's different is rarely a good idea.
