I sometimes think this repairability issue in the field is overstated. The reliability of most of these hubs (front and rear) is high, as far as I am aware. I know it's a different brand, but the SON dynohub I have has been running for over 40,000km in randonneuring and commuting conditions, and has not been touched once. I think perhaps Shimano learned a bit from SON in terms of seals and efficiency.
