Crack in Miyata at internal cable routing

This is more to share than anything, I am assuming the frame is toast and starting to look for a new frame (58 cm or so if any one has anything cool )
I have hear for a while that Miyata's with the internal cable routing were prone to cracks.....and checking my bike yesterday found this crack (it is a crack not a scatch..pic is not great) and you can see the starting point at the end of the straight part. The bike was bought new and has always been kept inside, no rust....I am clyde so it has had some stress

I am thinking the only fix would be a top tube replacement (have a shop that builds close, Silva Cycles, and will get an estimate) but probably between fix, paint and everything thinking I will look for a new frame.

thoughts? thankx
