RBF & Transaction Chaining

Reading through the discussions surrounding tx-chaining, it looks like one of the possibilities it opens up is replacing unconfirmed transactions in the mempool with a higher fee, known as Replace By Fee.

One of the great features of Monero is 0-conf spending being considered final and secure, and adding RBF would bring this to an end and eventually lead to a fee market where transactions are confirmed first to the highest bidder.

I want to get a feel for community consensus for this feature and how it would change Monero.

I for one think RBF has no place in Monero, as it would seriously affect the nature of transacting and make it more like bitcoin where a payment can be stuck for hours or even days as it keeps getting outbid during peak network times.
