I do disagree on one point, however; there is indeed a group who consistently innovate, create, and revel in the beauty of language: rappers.
I don't think you disagree: Fry's point is that very few of those who claim to be "guardians of language" actually revel in its beauty. Rappers don't make such claims and they certainly don't spend their time obsessing about apostrophes. I do believe that Stephen Fry would agree with you.
