Weight "technically" a tubeless tire usually weighs more than a non tubeless tire, non tubless tire with a lightweight tube not necessarily that much lighter to run tubeless, not to mention rim strips, etc. ..... WASH.
Tube - I don't carry one either.I can't recall the last time I had a flat tire. I had two on my DH bike last year, but I was running XC tubes as an experiment. I know that most guys who run tubeless on DH stopped due to tire burping issues, sure some still do, but its not nearly as popular as running the old fashioned tubed tire is. Haven't had a flat on my XC bike in who knows how long, years, maybe even decades and I run low pressures and slam into whatever is in the trail.
More feel - Debateable. Tubeless tires typically feel a bit thicker and stiffer to me, but if you really want it you can have it.
Better climbing - I don't have any problems with traction and climbing now.
Better handling - Again, I don't have any major traction issues.
More compliant - I run just as low of a tire pressure as you, but I also use my suspension to handle bumps, more hog wash.
Your evidence is purely opinion. It's fine you want to run tubless, I don't have a problem with it. Go ahead and run it. Just understand it's not for everyone, and it's not some magical formula. It's just the way YOU choose to set your bike up.
