I would almost agree with your position where several years ago Fast Pass was available, but not a point of advertising, but now it is the center of advertising (to sell tickets) and thus is in no way a "free perk". When you tell me that my trip includes Fast Pass Plus, then it is now understood to be included in the purchase of my ticket...nothing free there. Disney is pushing it so Disney now owns it when it does not work as advertised and we (the consumer) have every right to complain. The fact is, to make the most of the system you most jump through many "preplanning hoops". It is not quite as simple as advertised, especially of you are a single day visitor. Disney is not giving "everyone a fast pass", we are paying for every single one of them via the most expensive tickets of any amusement park in existence.
Prices go up every year? FP+ or not. Universal is the same price to get on and you don't get front of line passes unless you pay more.

On a side note, easywdw just tweeted about a half hour ago that he just booked a fp for test track for 20 minutes out from his home cpmputer. Then cancelled it and booked for space mountain, big thunder mountain, & peter pan for tonight.
