I could only understand about two-thirds of what you said, but I think I got it.

Shanghai Tower terminates perfectly fine. CTBUH has an ongoing issue with spire height being the final and more judgmental height of a building, when the highest occupied floor is hundreds of feet below. This is considered a vanity height; one which this tower does not need. It doesn't matter if it makes it taller than Shenzen, something else will dwarf all of them someday, and it will become completely irrelevant.

While its easy to build megatalls on the other side of the world, building megatalls in the States depends on demand. And if the demand isn't met, nor is it practical to build, then it will never progress past a hole in the ground.
