Basically, I agree with you, although in fact there are no so many differences between classical and italian or spanish pronunciation, at least in order to understand.
What do you think about greek pronunciation?

I'm in favor of pronouncing Greek with the Modern Greek pronunciation. My reasons for this are essentially idential to my reasons for preferring Italian pronunciation of Latin. Using the Modern Greek pronunciation makes Ancient Greek a real, living language.

Are you saying that you think it is too difficult for a person to keep the two pronunciations (Cllassical and Italian) straight in his head? I don't really believe that that is usually a big problem. But maybe I don't understand what you mean.
