Nah, don't agree with that at all.
The only wrapped plugin I've ever used is apTrigga I think - and now that I've got the Massey plugin, I have no need for that.
There are some notable exceptions of course, but a large number of "free" VSTs are free for a reason - no one would pay for them.
I'd use a wrapper if the plugin I wanted to use wasn't available for PT, but so far I've not really found that to be the case - PT certainly has plenty of processing plugins available (some would argue the best selection at the moment, given that McDSP aren't available elsewhere). If I did more programming and writing, maybe I'd be frustrated that not all softsynths are available as RTAS, but for mixing, you definitely don't need to wrap anything.
