Uh, 8kN, 10kN, not much difference. As per the link above it's happened at least once. That's once too many.
Bolts ought to be placed to meet accepted standards. Carrots don't.
Thanks Wendy for your 2c.

The visual thing was discussed at length in the pub last night. I'll repeat the salient points:
- Once you're 8m up, bolts are hard to spot from ground so it's only other climbers who are going to get uptight about the 'visual impact'. Besides, if visual impact of climbing was really an issue we'd all stop using chalk.
- Have you taken a look around at the other man-made infrastructure in your average park? Sealed roads, paved tracks, picnic shelters, concrete steps, steel guard rails. Bolts have negligible visual impact by comparison.
