As you so aptly stated, dilbit over crude transportation is folly...so why are you against a purpose built dilbit pipeline? Is it so that we can
continue to pump via crude lines and crude cars?
As for none of the profits staying in the US...again, naive and laughable. Where does oil gain most of it's 'value'? Why, at the refinement stage!
Nice...oh wait, not nice, not for Canada anyways...as Keystone will be taking the dilbit where? To US refineries! Yay!
As to what those US companies do with their profits is their business, but they will be making US taxable profits. And, contrary to modern fallacy,

The dilbit will go to those refineries regardless of shipment method.
The dilbit will be forced to remain on crude specific lines unless an alternative like Keystone is built.
The bulk of the 'value' will be made at the refinement stage.
The refinement will occur on US soil, making it a US taxable product.
