I know mate, I'm just justifying the fact that theres nothing to worry about in any of these samples given by you guys, its purely the algorythm and thats it, Vlad doesnt like it thats all.

Im giving my 10pence worth and then some, as I work in the industry and have experience on the matters in question, and have added some extra insight to Level edits...Perhaps I'll charge next time LOL

in terms of algorithym, maya, max, xsi, LW, all use catmull clarck.
the issue is even not doing higher lever tweaks it screws up the wire. this makes it unbareable for me to model and tweak.
take a look at older version of maya subD display at the bottom of he page here.
more here too
also in most apps now, u can edit subD verts directly on the surface, not at the poly cage point. which make modeling a lot more accurate and flowing in other apps [xsi, LW, modo]

i guess its a matter of preference at the end. if u can bare modeling in maya, great. unless im getting paid or have to use maya, i really wont for modeling.. anymore :p

here is a pic
