The topic being discussed is not what happens within an aggregate, but
what happens when two aggregates are using. This would be akin to
having two multi-link PPP connections (each constructed out of some
number of physical links).

Ok, then a fair description of the problem is that "circuits cannot be
aggregated across multiple switch chassis".  And that's not, in and of
itself, bad component design.

However, it pretty apparently limits the ability to make the best use
of your circuits in your system design...

The issue is spanning tree, not component design. Yes, technologies
that configure their topology using a spanning tree limit your ability
to make best use of potentially expensive circuits in your system
design.
