my tranny has yet to fail, car has over 51k miles on it, and i've been no angel with it. I used to launch from 5k rpm when stock, i'm nearing 295 WHP, and still no probs with tranny. So are you saying some are getting stuck with specifically bad or defective tranny components??? and therefore a partial recall of those with broken trannys should be conducted???
It truly all boils down to how you drive the car, IMO. So far so good with many of us with stock WRX's, and many of us with WRX's making quite a bit more than stock power too.

I race my car, I break my car, I fix my car. that is the chance we take by modding.
