Honestly, as long as it stays cosmetic, I really don't have a problem with anything. I too thought that I wouldn't ever purchase anything from there, but after getting a game card that offered the sixty day membership and four hundred some-odd runecoin package, I can't say I'm disappointed with my pegasus teleport.
I would like to suggest something middle ground on this thread and then prepose this idea on the suggestion forums within greater detail. Could we perhaps have a free amount of runecoin every month with membership but in return the prices (Runecoin, not value) for items could be increased?
For example: Say a member got 100 runecoins every month. That sounds like a lot now, but what if you increased prices (Runecoin) by 250%. To combat this, the amount of coins we could redeem from a purchase online would accurately reflect the change so that no value is lost, just the numbers are different. I would be willing to bet that more players would be satisfied with these updates if they had a chance to get some of the items.
For those who say, "So I paid for this item and now people can get it for free!?"
Well, that's instant gratification for you. You proved you were willing to fork over the money to get it as I have with my teleport. Now you can rack up Runecoin WITH the thing you have!
I suppose this could be kind of a model off of the loyalty store except with a few minor differences:
~The coin amount doesn't increase per month
~It takes much longer to get items
~Players could get them now instead of later, or if they've saved up enough over time, buy the rest of the coins needed at a discount.
I'd imagine an increase in smaller purchases tagged along with the regular large purchases would be good for business. It's a win win (or for those who are pessimistic, another way for those "Grubby handed company investors" to gain money) for all. If anything, it would be one more incentive for players to stay members to have an increase in coinage over time.

The companies that real-world trade offered in game bonuses, namely wealth. These COSMETIC updates do absolutely nothing to hinder the player base and it gives Jagex a way to add items players want without having to build quests and awkward reasons behind them.
If this update was so "bad" as you believe it is, why do people run around with Solomon gear? I see it everyday, and not just the below 200 coin mark.
