    its true that extinction of certain linguistic
    traditions leads to loss of skills/techiques. OTOH,
    preserving these traditions takes up brains which may
    be better employed developing new/better techniques.
    isnt there a cost/opportunity trade-off here? is the
    picture really so white and black?
