That was brilliant. I think Scott made two very good points. D needs people like himself to educate others

I think you misunderstood that point ;) He was saying to make D so that we DON'T need specialists like himself that can make a career out of explaining the strange quirks of D, mostly by not having those quirks in the first place.
