I don't have strong feelings one way or the other about zero frets. Nuts can work, zero frets can work.

Zero frets, perhaps, reduce some problems while introducing others. For example, IF one wants to have strings individually compensated at the nut, a straight-across zero fret prevents that. A zero fret assumes the function of defining string height while leaving to the nut the function of string spacing. That makes nut replacement easier, though, with a zero fret, I'm not sure what value there would be in changing the nut from one material to another.
