Good comments, here are some thoughts:

1) necessity of self tending jib - I am going to argue that a self tending jib makes single handing makes short tacking up a tight channel a delight instead of a chore.

2) necessity to be able to trim sails to stay on course without using the tiller - agreed that there are few and far between boats that one can accomplish this easily, but I will argue that this is a simple test of how well you can manage the basic sailing qualities of your vessel.
