I guess I may be in the minority, but it doesn't bother me at all. The way I see it is the people who get status via challenge either are going to become frequent flyers, or they aren't. If they become active and requall normally, then they deserve whatever benefits they can get. If they don't and only set foot on a few more flights each year, then all they have is a shiny gold or platinum card and not enough coupon upgrades to even move up front (unless they buy them). So they are likely not to affect us "real" elites at any significant level because they just don't fly that much. If AA wants to give them the card, no big deal.
