Perhaps pushing the (inevitable?) failure so far into the mileage future that it becomes a non-issue.
I would say that you are correct, except for the statement that "we haven't solved the underlying problem". I would go with maybe on that one (just to be conservative). Everything else is correct. I would say the last sentence reflects my exact feelings on this subject.
I want to be unique, just like everybody else.
