I think your points of correct asset valuation and risk weighting is probably more important than what the capitalisation levels should be. It seems to be misrepresentation of asset values which has caused all the problems.
Maybe banks need to be made to "open source" their balance sheets (including SIVs etc), to enable public scruitiny and to prevent regulatory capture or corruption.
