To answer your question, Steve, to do what the Luxor system does, you would need too much equipment. For example, the system I installed had 4 Luxor transformers controlling over 30 groups. To do that with SA or other UPB systems, you would need over 30 transformers, and dedicated main runs to each group, meaning you would have to use 5-10X the wire of a standard install.
Each has its place, and I can see using simply automated on more jobs than Luxor, but the Luxor does what no other product out there does right now.
As to the fixture choices, you are limited to what fx makes. That part sucks because they don't make every fixture I might want to use. What would rock everyone's world is if they came out with retrofit LEDs that were ZD (zoning and dimming) compatible.
