I agree with all of you to some extent, but fortunately there are natural snakes living in the wild that have not been messed with and the natural diversity of species, subs and forms will, by definition, remain correct for their kind. on the other hand, looking at all the artificial dog breeds, for instance, most would agree that each breed has it's unique value and interest, even though few look like the natural Wolves or other canines they came from.
Personally, I don't like the idea of crossing species for fun or profit and I find the results generally unappealing. This goes for the albino strains as well, which, due to breeders, have gone from a rare curiosity to something no longer interesting, to Boring or even sad.
