Without a decent fixed rate component to go with the inflation part, I just dont see the value in them for me. We have only been above 4.9% on a yearly basis once since 1982, and only 5 times eclipsing even 4% in 33 years, with the last in 1991. Not real compelling to me. Now toss me that 3% fixed in, and it really piques my interest!
