I think the point is being missed, yes you as an individual may well prefer to develop the skill of capturing the single image and draw satisfaction from the idea of it, but if the technology develops so you can pull the same quality of image from a video stream then it is a game changer.
Will the viewer of a great photograph know or care if it's a single capture or pulled from a video stream. It will be interesting to see how these developing technologies are adopted by working professionals. I can't see how being able to pull the optimum single image from a video feed could be bettered by the same operator using a conventional camera, and a good photographer would quickly home in on the worthwhile frames to choose from, you wouldn't be editing 75000 frames.
Like the diffrence from fly fishing to going to sea in a trawler.
