Make no mistake, I love T2 but as we have to wait for it, allow me to use what we call in French "La méthode coué" (it's a method of self-persuasion). It's simple, you just have to tell yourself again and again: "T2 is not that important, T2 is not that important...". It's a good way to wait for it without suffering.
To stay on topic and to summarize my thoughts, I really think that If T3 gets build anytime soon, it will really fill a hole from any viewpoints.
