My proto handles pow fine with a centered stance, I'd feel confident taking it into deep shit just by setting it back. Obviously its not going to do anything like a real powder board, but I agree with the OP's opinion and have no desire to ride a directional plank just because they are "supposed" to be for big mountain. I'll drop into waist deep pow off a nice fat cornice above treeline without a second thought.
edit: maybe next year Ill have some pow to drop into, instead of a rock field.
