Pretty much nailed my feelings on this.

I can't afford to stockpile film when it gets dropped.
Plus from a pragmatic point of view, I'm much happier directing my limited budget for this stuff toward companies which are demonstrating commitment to sticking around.
I hate that I feel that way, but...
