It's like only allowing people to get three of the four pillars. It's a sadistic taunt saying 'Nah nah, you can't have the cleft book!'.
No it isn't, it's simply a 'sorry, you weren't in the right place at the right time'.
Going by what you're suggesting, all content must be made available constantly from the moment it's released (or repeatedly, like the flame argument). If that's the case, where's the dynamic environment? It's completely predictable, which is bad.
I can quite believe that the sparks will be on a cycle, but I can't for a moment believe that it'd be an awful thing if they weren't.
Well, the idea is that if there's something major unlocked (which is what everyone is hedging on), then everyone should be able to get it, unless there is some reason for them not to (like it was removed). Simply saying "no, sorry, you can't have this wonderful new age because you weren't here every month four years ago" isn't going to be attractive to new gamers.
For cowards die a thousand deaths, while heros die but one.
Well, unless they're playing video games, in which case heros die a lot too.
