I don't want him to be "the real" 9th Doctor because that would be just a big eff-u to what we've known since 2005.
How so? No one's denying that the Eccleston Doctor is a Doctor, after all he was explicitly shown in the web, we heard his voice, and he was one of the body double Docs at the very end. It would just mean that the Doctor we thought was the 9th is actually 10th, Tennant is 11th and Smith is 12th. Nothing disrespectful about moving the numbers up one.
