Actually, using privacy addresses doesn't stop you from using static addresses too. You can have multiple addresses at the same time.

I agree the privacy gains aren't fantastic, but that's because most privacy issues are a result of cookies in browsers, or of mobile apps sponging every piece of data they can off of your phone. Obfuscating the right-hand 64 bits of your address, however you do it, is never going to give you fantastic privacy gains in a world where most privacy breaches come via a different vector.
