What worries me, however, is who is "us", and that the language may have
changed for a portion of intelligencia (which could be a start), but not for
speakers in general, which only alienates and seperates them.
If the aim is descriptive, not directive then I happen to agree with you.
The best vehicle for change in language
is awareness and usage by speakers in that language
