Informed rebuttal of VBR disadvantages appreciated, VBR always rocks, when it comes to lossy compression, right?

As already mentinend in this thread some fanboy over at the offical Pioneer forums is making claims that VBR sucks (here and here) in that it needs more processing power compared to CBR and for various other reasons.

I would like to have a well written rebuttal of that statment based on facts so Pioneer might reconsider putting VBR support into their upcoming DJ equipment. I've ripped all my 1000+ CDs to VBR and I wouldn't want to reencode them just because Pioneer doesn't get it right. Thanks!

On the switch subject, I just would like to add that the numbers should be inverted. That is, V1 to V9 (max. quality). I never understood why in the world "zero" was the best quality. The way it is it's simple, but quite confusing for newbies of course. Apologies that I went offtopic with others, but I believe that was a valid claim.
