OK, Clive. For you, there is no added value to seeing an original print over a reproduction. I will accept that, and maybe some others will ...
But you asked the question. Not everybody agrees, and when you ask this type of question, this is what happens.
I think the whole discussion comes down to the fact that you do not consider a print to be anything but a "reproduction" of the negative, so there is no more value there than any other type of reproduction. Fair enough. But, as you can see, there is a variety of opinions.
