Why is FX topicality illegit and unfair

Whats wrong with FX topicality?

1) It avoids core disad links

2) It avoids case generics

3) It steals ground, because it is a counterplan.

4) Its also illegitimate based on the pandoras box of legitimate aff

5) technically it mixes burdens because you have to look at solvency to determine topicality (not sure what I think of this argument)

6) risks bi-directionality on some topics (decrease now to prevent a future increase or vice-versa).

Also there is often a double-bind between being either FX or Extra.
