I think everyone understands the value of intervals. Not sure why you think mixing systems in a workout is an issue? It's not difficult to incorporate multiple types of intervals in a longer training session. Perhaps if you've only got 30-40 min to workout indoors then fine but if you're going out for a long ride it's common to mix it up a little more. After all you don't get to race using only one system.
