You are 100% correct, but if you think this is a good idea you clearly have no idea how money works. Having a deflationary, scarce, currency is an awful idea. Its the same reason we don't have gold coins anymore.
I hate to be that guy, but between January and December, Bitcoin showed hyperdeflation rather than hyperinflation, caused by high demand and restricted supply. With inflation the money you have loses value, and you can buy less with the same amount of currency over time. Bitcoin showed exactly the opposite of that.
Over 2 weeks, sure. Give it a year or two and I don't think you'll be saying that.
For what its worth, Bitcoin looks like it's starting to rise again after the Mt. Gox fiasco. It's in uncharted territory, so there are bound to be bumps in the road and obstacles to manoeuvre. It's nowhere near mature, but it's growing up fast.
