The implication of this statement is that if you cannot afford the RIR fees, the routers, the technical expertise to run those routers, the additional opex associated with "BGP-capable" Internet connectivity, etc., the services/content you provide don't deserve resiliency/redundancy/etc.

I have trouble seeing how this can be called "good".  A "necessary evil given broken technology" perhaps, but not "good".

Being able to effectively multi-home without BGP, removing the need to ever renumber, etc., all sound like benefits to the edge to me.

People keep saying this.

For core providers, the equation doesn't change.  Well, OK, they may lose the additional fees they get for "BGP-capable" connections and they won't have the 'benefit' of the cost of renumbering to reduce customer thrash, however they continue to get paid for providing connectivity services. They might even save some money in the long run as they won't need to replace their hamsters with guinea pigs quite as frequently.

For edges, the addition of a network element gives them freedom and resiliency at the cost of additional complexity and a bit of additional latency/reduced bandwidth.  However, it is the edges that would pay the cost to get the benefit. I have trouble seeing how this economic equation is wrong.

Not really. For example, you (or somebody) have to edit/recompile code to use IPv6. You do not have to recompile code to use LISP.
