I think quite the opposite, actually. It's a rather "Ho Hum" kind of thing.
1 MOA is pretty easy to do. I don't take the "all day" part to be literal. Who shoots all day? It means the rifle will do it pretty much all the time. It also doesn't mean that it will never
not do it, it means that it will do it the vast majority of the time.
I don't have a vast collection but I do load for 5 different rifles and a 15" Encore handgun and they will all do 1" at 100 yards. It's tougher with the Encore but it's quite doable.
I load for a Ruger M77 MkII in .204 and a Remington 700 in 22-250, you'd have to sneeze or something to make either one shoot 1" at 100. Their bad groups are barely over 1/2".

The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
