For me the standing start is part of the spectacle, it heightens the expectations and now, with the theoritical elimination of LC/TC, we also get to see another aspect of driver's skills: namely how they are able to launch the cars and defend against the traffic.
Today's carnage wasn't all that bad either, there's been worse in the past.

Champcar just went to standing starts [and then went tits up] and they had FEWER problems off the start than with rolling starts.
With rolling starts F1 cars would reach the braking point at top speed and accidents would be worse.
