You just don't get over anything, do you, Gunner?
You can clutter up the discussion in any way you might want, although I'm not sure anyone here is terribly entertained by your various grudges against me personally. But the fact remains that that the admonition to avoid synthetics during break in is entirely based on a wholly outdated fallacy, and that's all there is to it.
Regarding Rotella, it has always been a really great engine oil, in both flavors. What it used to lack was the ability to stay in grade (retain its viscosity) for longer than two hours use in any kind of a transmission. That problem was shared by a good many oils not ten years ago, and is caused by the fact that the additives that allow the creation of multi-grade oils are inherently physically fragile, and those used in most engine oils were not up to the job of lubing even a very light transmission. The result is that what started out as a 5W-40 quickly became a 5W-25, or thereabouts. Beginning about that long ago, some blenders came to realize this and started using the more robust additives then recently developed expressly so that multi-grade gear oils would be possible. This practice has spread quite a bit, and now the number of shear stable oils you can buy is much greater than it used to be. The good news for you is that Shell has gotten on board with this now, and recent UOA's of Rotella show that it's been much improved in that regard. Still, there's not often a way to know that up front, as Amsoil MCF and MCV are the only two I know of that put the compliance with API GL-1 on their label.
Then too, it's always been so cheap that one could actually afford to spend the money, if not the time, on an oil change for every ride. Not necessary any more.
