Just have a look what happens to these two Alts ( and their market caps) and understand what might be good next steps for bitcoin.

Agreed, it's a bit far off but attractive to think that way.

stop thinking HardFork only= altcoin creation!!!

even a softfork can create an altcoin. and core have admitted they will and can by showing how segwit filters data and black/white listing nodes

a consensus is DIFFERENT than a bilateral split(altcoin creation).
ethereum was a bilateral split and intentionally split because the nodes added a ban opposing node connection rule --oppose-dao-fork

a hard consensus just causes orphan drama and a SINGLE chain after the orphan drama subsides where the small minority just wont sync at all and left dead.

orphans prevent a second chain co-existing. the only way to get a minority to survive is to literally ban the opposing nodes so that they can build ontop their minority without worry of orphans shutting them down.

sipa learned that lesson the hard way in 2013 with the leveldb bug he created.
