TITAN is just about number one on my list why I am using bitshares (equally it would be transaction speed).
To get rid of TITAN would be insane in my opinion. Anonymous coins will pretty much be the norm going forward. Why would it be any other way?
It is a great invention, no question! I am not against it at all.
Just wasn't the right time. As Onion pointed out, it introduced unnecessary problems.
That said, it's always easier after the fact, even with that - it is impressive what they've gotten done in this period of time.
It's always easier to project what's possible and to expect instant gratification, but things always take much longer to develop.
