I can't say I agree with you on this point. If I came across a free 5 speed I'm not sure if I would install it or just sell it to someone else, I wouldn't even consider a 6 speed with my current power delivery.

You have to keep in mind that when you add gears you also add shifts to get the same work done. Each shift then multiplies other issues like lag. Once you start bumping power the 930 gears don't feel so long anymore.
