How can anyone belittle his achievement? To be that consistant across all circuits for the entire year is nothing short of phenomenal. There will always be ifs and buts such as if Stoner was fit all season. Simple truth is Lorenzo didn't have any unforced errors and as has been shown with bike races in all forms any mistake can have very dire consequences.

The other point I'd make about him not winning recently when protecting a large lead why would he push too the limit? For several races he consolidated rather than pushed so the statements about missing riders or the bad luck of others makes no sense as it would of changed the mentality of all involved if the outcome had been different thus changing the following results.
