It is fine that you subscribe to HIrakawa's philosophy but it is a tab arrogant to call everyone else foolish.

It's not foolish to ask 'what exactly makes a good lens', but it truly isn't just MTF scores. I'm sure it is fully quantifiable - but it may be shortsighted to say that the quantifying stops at MTF, CA, distortion.

In short I guess I'm saying I subscribe to Hirakawa Jun's philosophy also.

Wait... are you trying to say... that shooting flat test charts is not the meaning of photography?
