Yeah, her ideas helped put them (purists) in a different light for me as well, as did a posting sometime back from, I believe, Mountain Thyme or someone about bluegrass. I've always just secretly viewed purists as sort of cranky, anal types who don't really "get" the fun of synthesizing musical genres. I'm more of a world music kind of gal and really seeing all the crossover and mooshing together that happens when music cross-pollinates. But thinking of the value of the guardians of the flame put it all in a kinder and more respectful perspective.
