Now, as for my objections:
I don't think I need to quote you exactly, since I agree with your overall sentiment. I'm not sure how it's an objection however, since I didn't state that every possible combination leads to a "playable" alignment system.
One specific clarification: 2^10 isn't correct since not every feature is binary. In fact, the number can't be calculated since one of the features is hypothetically infinite in number, and many of the "scalar" ones are actually analog / organic and can't be calculated. They are matter of feel on a slider derived from purely subjective criteria -- this is where I use "partially" as an (admittedly insufficient) identifier.
