When I had proposed blockchain pointers with the PubRef opcode, he took the time to explain to me concerns around re-orgs and why it is a bigger problem than I initially had thought — and I greatly appreciate this detail. After touching base with ZmnSCPxj and Greg Maxwell there is an overwhelming view that the current problems that face the network outweigh any theoretical ones.

Greg Maxwell isn't on this list, but assuming this is about the conversion you've had on Bitcoin Core's security disclosure list, I believe this is a misrepresentation. The discussion has been mostly around a DoS attack report which turned out to be a mistake.
