That is your opinion. For me, the difference is quite relevant.

If you know what "SPF advocates" mean to say, why do most (if not
all) disagree with your opinion?
Could it be that you are spreading your opinion, disguised as theirs?
I think that the SPF community is well aware of the fact that there
is a number of people using a way of forwarding that will become
impossible in the future (if and when SPF is deployed). I don't
think all of them consider this way of forwarding "normal". Perhaps
most of them agree on this method being "in use", but that doesn't
mean it is THE right way.
There are alternatives. You just don't want to accept them because
YOU think they are unnecessary alternatives. Newsflash: Others
have opinions to and they may not agree with yours.
