Serious, how can you be serious about anything as unsignificant as this?
Insignificant! How dare you?! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I observe you steering cautiously around the Estë/Vána question: What would have happened if for example Estë or Vána would have been mightiest of the Valar? Would they walk the same path into ruin? Or would they be able to choose right and do good (read: Eru-style) things with their power?
With Vana I suspect that we would be up to our necks in flowers. (A horrible fate for me considering my galloping allergies!) Or maybe nobody would have allergies so we could enjoy the flowers so much better, with out the spasmodic sneezing, or the flooding eyes.
With Este we would probably have better ways to cure our allergies and would be living in a world of fountains and sofas.

If they ran amok then everyone would have rampent allergies and be drowning in fountains.

I don't believe that power is the problem. Pride is the problem. While having power often leads to pride I don't think that it always works that way.

Eru who in fact has no business in Arda itself and lives somewhere else
That does not prevent him from intervening if he feels like it (read Numenor).

Frustrating or not you still should do the right thing.
