Agree with most of those points. As someone only just coming into this sector fresh - the first couple of points have (unsurprisingly) been a reality in most commercial companies for a long time. Though the more enlightened ones do recognise a bit of R&D (play) time is beneficial to the company. Sure it'll be the same for unis.

The online status and use of free/open tech may actually counter that last point on new blood and losing to start-ups. A uni with a good online presence (of staff as much as PR), and using OS software, mashups etc is more attractive to interesting developers than a more closed off one that uses enterprise-y software.
