Please think for a moment about much of the content of my post. It is not an attempt to debate one type of surface coating over another for the titanium mount - it questions the need of any additional surface coating at all.
I also added my voice to Jeff Kilgore's observation that this discussion seemed to be moving off the intent of the thread.
To address your question, first let the community (not me) know why you believe that the lens mount design that RED has proposed falls short. If you have discovered a legitimate flaw, then it should be addressed. If you have specific knowledge about manufacturing techniques and could provide a cost/benefit analysis for the community to consider, that would be a benefit for all.
However, if the proposed design not only meets, but exceeds industry standards, I would suggest that we let the RED team continue to innovate and enhance EPIC before considering solutions for problems that exist only as speculation.
From a personal perspective, I like what I've seen come out of that team. I believe that the advantages of the titanium mount over stainless over aluminum are well stated in this thread. The question of affordability of each option is a choice for the individual owner / operator. Myself, I would love Ti, but may need to settle on stainless.
Nuff said? Peace...
