Maybe they should just be held up to posterior.

They're just not the same beast, anymore than a Daguerreotype is a GSP. Photography has moved on, and digital printing processes are only one more, albeit the latest, way to present an image in tangible form. Successful photographers adjust and grow with the times, or else starve (and/or die). Me? I'm just an uncompromising, starving and dying, anachronistic silver printer. OTOH, I just watched a webinar on printing digital B/W and had to laugh, at myself, when nearing the end the presenter suggested using a software film grain filter to give the piece that "film" look . So don't get your bats all in a twist over it.
