Almost all your arguments seem to rely on the axiom that people with absolute pitch recognition have better relative pitch recognition too (and better timbral hearing). This is often the case in the music realm, because APR often develops during intensive musical training as a child (but also sometimes later, in a weaker sense of APR). I think there would also be a correlation to sheet music reading and knowledge of great composers :lol: .
Indeed, this is what I'm getting at - the combination of absolute pitch hearing *and* good musical skills is a decisive factor that allows people with such abilities to outperform those without, at some tasks. People that you describe are most likely to succeed in professional capacity as composers and musicians.

What I originally responded to was whether absolute pitch is desirable and useful.
Is it not a fact that acquiring long-term absolute pitch hearing ability adds positively to overall capabilities of a skilled music maker?

Let's put it this way, in another example: imagine you're starting a music production company that offers composition, transcription etc. services. You've got two applicants for a job, with fully equal abilities in all areas, except that one of them has demonstrated long-term absolute pitch recognition ability and the other has not. Which one would you hire?

I said it before: Trancecrafter made excellent stuff long before being interested in perfect pitch...
I'd say that as long as TranceCrafter is enjoying the activity, who are any of us to question that quest for absolute pitch. Personally I find efforts to develop one's wetware admirable, especially compared to my own path of cyborgification.
