The argument is technically correct but non-responsive to the
expressed concerns. The point is that we already have ONE root and for
better or for worse, most folk accept the impact of its being there.
The objection is not that there must be "No Root!" but rather than
there should be "No More Roots!"... (as I've said before: "Reality is
rarely relevant, it is perceptions that count.")
