Now you're trying to have it both ways - your previous post basically dismissed introducing PV as a factor and that any attempt to do so would be incorrect.

FTR, I object to over-bolting for 3 different but important reasons:
  1. Possible future restrictions to access by land-managers
  2. I want to retain as much of a trad ethic as possible since I consider it a purer form of climbing
  3. Excessive visible bolting is ugly - even for me as a climber
Of these, the 2nd point is the principle reason for my arguments at Rosea, but it doesn't mean that i. and iii. aren't still factors.
