    It's a concession for giving white a permanent pawn weakness and fighting for the center with f5, which would never be possible otherwise.  It's really not so much different than the Nimzo-Indian in principle.

    ...f5 can be played in the nimzo too, but without ...g6 and i have played this line once or twice myslef. Its very dutch-like, in fact. So why not just play the nimzo with ...f5?

    White doesn't have to allow f5 in the Nimzo.

    It also helps to be familiar with the Pirc/Modern because your opponent can avoid it as a whole with 2.e4, which I've been studying. Ron Henley advocated the Hippo with black if white avoided the Dzindzi lolol
