They did, at least, provide an interim step in educating the public about
alternatives to incandescent. Had the jump been from $1 edison bulbs
straight to $50 LED there'd have been no movement at all.
I too will consider LEDs if/when suitable dimmable options existed. But I'm
not about about replace a whole series of dimmers (expensive Lutron RF
I tried all manner of CFLs and gave up. Between the color temp issues and
reliability (even on plain switches, not dimmers) they were a complete
failure. Hell, even plain old fluorescent tubes do a better job.
