My LFS has a RTC in a huge display tank at the end of one of the rows of tanks. She's called Rosie and she's older than me. She's the LFS owners pride and joy, and he's looked after her really well. She's a really lovely specimen and will follow you around as you walk past her tank, and also follow your hand if you wave it slowly across the glass. She's beautiful and a really interesting fish to see. I always stop off to see her when i'm in.
So i'd say that they can make good fish to keep, but only if you have the resources and space to keep them properly, like your own fish shop!
I'd agree however that it's wrong to just sell them to anyone who comes through the door, thinking that they'll stay at the cute 2" that you see them in in stores. Just because some people do something wrong, it doesn't mean that those who can do it right shouldn't!
