I don't mind doing gray area cheats, and therefore I don't object to throwing out Netherrack and replacing it with an equal quantity of Netherbrick, just because I see no reason for that not to be a crafting recipe in game. Hey, you can do it with stone brick, so why not Netherbrick? I'm thinking of possibly building a Netherbrick fortress, but I'd like to see if anyone has any better ideas, possibly without the gray area of cheating.
Uh. It's NOT quite equal. Mining rack vs brick is different. I've mined A LOT of both. The mining speed 1st off isn't equal. Then you also have rarity vs common. Might as well turn all that insanely quick mined netherrack into mossy cobble and circle stone while you're at it.
