You must be joking ... or simply not aware of what kinds of "eyes" it takes to earn a living as a serious photographer. I do, indeed, have trained eyes and can easily see differences that most don't notice. The magazine photo editors I work for have similarly trained eyes and let nothing get past them. If I want to work for them on a regular basis, I had better deliver the things they definitely DO notice!

Hey, I have work hanging in museums, for Pete's sake.

Regarding everything else you wrote, Thom's list of "disciplines" make sense, and few would disagree with him. But I definitely and decidedly disagree with his assessment of the print quality that is possible with the X10 at large sizes. Indeed, there are any number of photographers I know who generally shoot full frame high end gear and have recently discovered the X10. They've said the same thing about its VERY surprising ability to deliver shots capable of excellent large prints.
