Also, if the mining mechanism is perceived as unfair by too many people, it isn't a problem that will go away when the new BTC are all minted, because the same hash-calculation-for-reward system persists after the "inflationary" period, just with transaction fees replacing new coinage as the reward.
Since it relies on voluntary mass participation by humans, getting the "fairness" balanced just right is a lot harder than getting the crypto right, you might say.
