I believe music is about what the artist wants...true that some focus too much on the technical side with less catching melodies. But the best of both worlds is also possible and more challenging to the artist. So many of these artists aren't appreciated as much as they should be. Being amazingly self aware of the importance of melody behind the awesome skills!
When people begin to share their knowledge rather than keep it to themselves, everyone benefits and the music lives on forever. It's never about who can become the king or queen of the hill, it's about the longevity of the music.
