you're not entirely wrong, but I disagree. I don't think an argument over raising the hard cap is the same as allowing more divisibility of that cap.

The reason? When you create more WHOLE units of something (like dollars or bitcoins) you get inflation. Nobody wants that. However, making something more divisible doesn't result in inflation. For example, currently the penny is the smallest unit of a US dollar at 1/100. If congress voted to create 1/2 pennies or .25 pennies does that result in inflation? No. It only means the market can price goods with further precision. The holders of whole dollars experience no loss of purchasing power, no matter how small pennies get.

I commend you though on your obvious research and gained understanding into Bitcoin (it's more than many people...).
