The problem, Tiger, that I and a few others have is that you state that you aren't an expert on carbon and then go on to state opinions on carbon that wouldn't have been out of place in the '80s but aren't remotely valid today. Carbon is very tough; much more than you think. I wouldn't want to ride an aluminum frame anyone has taken a hammer to and then dropped from a tree either.
