I too wish it were like a private British club where the rules were strictly enforced, but IC clubs are simply not that. In fact they are designed in a way that kids love to hang out in them for an hour or so.
We seem to agree on 99% except your last point. No one is saying that they desire a private British Club, but I would say that the Club is more intended to be a place for business people and adults to relax during and after a busy day - and clearly intended to be a private quiet elegant haven away from the bustle and noise of the rest of the hotel than it is to be a place for children to run around, play on the computers all day and generally make a nuisance of themselves. If there is a irreconcilable contention between these two pulls then I do not think it being a lounge for kids is the right choice between the two.
