Good article, agree with most of it.

Is the ISS high-inclination orbit worth going to for assembly, though? How much of a mass penalty do you pay?

You lose the convenient nearby human presence, but what if you launch a large tug with an arm into a more horizontal orbit?

Ken was the one who deserves credit for that one, he wrote it. Thanks for the link! If I get back at a sane enough hour from engine testing today, I may post a few of my own thoughts on the topic.
