You say we will need larger blocks eventually, so 2x sets us up for the future. I understand 2x blocks will take twice as long to transmit, and this tends to centralize mining but doubling the link speed will offset this effect.
National crypto currencies really positive long term for btc, It will get the public at large accustomed to the idea of crypto currencies. Later, they will compare and consider the benefits of a long(at that stage more so) established decentralised coin. BTC will attract more money in. Long game.
