I guess it comes down to function and durability. If it's a quality piece, fits and functions well, and lasts a reasonably long time, I think the apparent lack of being able to be rebuilt fades in importance. I get what you say completely, but at less than half the price of the Edelbrock alternative, you could buy another complete replacement unit and still be equal, even slightly ahead of the game financially.
Just a thought. Of course, it all comes down to it being a decent unit or not. Time will tell. My car is still a ways off from being ready, and even when that happens, there won't be many miles put on it per year, so I'll be a fairly poor trailblazer on this one.
Edit - Somehow I got this in the wrong order here on Jurassic software. This was supposed to be in response to the post below.

Sorry 'bout that.
