I would not be so quick to dismiss the need for a bag warmer than -10F. And not everyone enjoys using a VBL. One should plan accordingly based their planned clothing options, tent style (single wall vs double wall), and on an average of historical temps as opposed to a single year's weather. Personally, while I did sleep with my -20 bag unzipped most nights, there were definitely 2 nights @ 17 where I was glad I had it in early June '06. My $0.02

I think it depends a lot on personal experience. I went with a -15 bag cut large to accomodate most of my clothing, all of which I was happy to wear at 17k as temps dipped below -30F at night.
