Does nobody start these things from the start anymore (that's aimed at Orrin not you James, given the quotation marks)? Same goes for Resonate - all I see now is videos of people starting from a stand...
I think the issues specific to the full sit starts to the trio of Alpha, Resonate and Ebola are that a) the rock is total choss in places, b) stacked pads are required if you're a shorter climber and c) the moves add nothing of value to the problems, wherein the meat of the difficulty and quality climbing is through from a stand.
Not to mention that most people I've seen doing Ebola from standing have still started from the same holds, so it's only pulling their arse of a (usually stacked) pad they've missed.
That said, I do think people should start Resonate from matched on the undercuts. It's clearly stated in the guide, on UKC and Peak Bouldering and adds two worthwhile moves as opposed to starting from the dish and a higher undercut as I've seen some people doing.
