You've made some good points. However:
UKBA will not respond to queries after 14 weeks. If you contact them you will get a scripted response of "your application has not yet been processed". I defy you to find someone who has queried their application after 14 weeks and has received a decent informed response.
Solicitor respresentation adding credibility to your application? I used a OCIS qualified solicitor and I've been waiting 6 months. So I don't think I have been treated any differently than someone who didn't used a solicitor. The benefit of using a solicitor is a thorough application, they ensure that all areas are covered so questions are answered immediately. I would only use a solicitor if your case is complex, otherwise a complete waste of money and time. The only time I think solicitors add credibility during the application process is when there is a need to complain. They know the UKBA process inside out therefore the right words to use and know the right people to contact to raise a complaint. That is why I advised the OP to complain via their solicitor.
As I said in my previous post, see UKBA chasing you as a positive. This is a very rare occasion and it most definitely means they are actively looking at your application...9588.

The undertone of what you say is quite dark "... people with no ancestoral links what-so-ever waltz in?". I am not here to dwell on that though.
