As it stands now, there is no benefit to paying extra for E+ in terms of earning. As long as UA has their ridiculous MQD, I will continue to earn with any other *A program that does not have such requirements. Basically, it is just one more reason to choose a program other than UA for earning mileage.
I should also add that with all the emphasis on spend, it is also weird that E+ ever didn't count as spend. Bag fees and BOB too.

If you are spending on UA, it should count as spend.
