By "p-zombieness" are you referring to philosophical zombies? If so, I suppose I find them "meaningful" as a philosophical thought-experiment for making the case that facts about consciousness are at least partly independent from facts about the physical world, but I don't believe that any real-world implementation of a mind would be a philosophical zombie (see Chalmers' argument about 'fading qualia' at http://consc.net/papers/qualia.html ) -- do you?
