Stuck behind a train, so I'll bite. I think this is a positive move in terms of increasing diversity in the breed. It seems people want to breed to the "best" and they think that's the VA1 dog. (While of course that may not be the "best" match for their female.)
Now if only we could get people to recognize that it might be the V or SG dog that represents the standard best in terms of structure AND temperament.
