The ultimate question is whether one cares or not. I care, but I'm sure others don't. I'm also not much into downloading. I'd also rather own the disc for the occassions when I want to show someone the movie. I don't want to keep renting the download or keep buying massive terrabytes of hard drive.
I agree with everything you said but the only intangible as far as the general public is concerned as you said whether they care about quality. If the near demise of the compact disc and the popularity of compressed music downloads is any indication we Blu Ray supporters may have a obsolete format sooner than later.
