(cont) road bikes have the tech not because the owner wants to get to work 3 seconds quicker, but because they're of an age when they can afford to 'keep up with the Jones's'! Put the skilled 10% of road riders on an early VFR 750 and they'll be quicker & safer than the other 90% on a brand new VFR. Road riding is dangerous by default, so a bit of TC won't make much difference - most people crash because they run out of skill on the bends / brakes anyway! And bikes only have gadgets because their competitors do - I worked at the head office of a major manufacturer and benchmarking was the most important aspect of new model introduction.
Make seamless compulsory or ban it.
Make pneu valves compulsory or ban them.
I just want a level playing field, and honest bikes for honest riders. Unfortunately what bike you ride has more to do with $ than skill which negates my argument somewhat. But I guess that's the materialistic, coveting world we have to live in :-(
