I have yet to see arguments against the project that weren't based on false assumptions.

I would hardly consider being skeptical that Roberts can deliver everything he has promised without a publisher as irrational or "based on false assumtions". The promises he has made (and that is all they are at this point - bulletpoints in a FAQ are not "facts") make it clear the breadth and depth of this project goes way beyond what he was able to do in Freelancer, and that was made with the near-infinite resources of Microsoft.

I think Roberts is a space sim design god and a true visionary, but I still need more than a lofty vision and tons of wonderful sounding features before I can have faith that anything this ambitious can be done in the manner he is attempting. I'm hopeful, sure, but this wouldn't be the first time the product fell well short of the vision in a gaming project, so I remain in wait-and-see mode.
