I dont know that anyone can tell you the future...hopefully someone with inside track will know something though.
A lot seems to be up to your individual ranger, newbies tend to go by the book.
The consensus I garned here from the past is :
1) take their bags , they arent that bad
2) do it their way
3) attempt to sub lighter and stronger blue amsteel rope, bring the specs with you just in case. Respectfully argue the point, and give evidence others have used them
Just like in the business world, I suggest you pick your battles, no one wants to win every one, or lose every one, its a human thing. Compromise is often needed just to keep everyone happy.
