In my opinion that pic proves the exact opposite, that 1WTC looks incredibly awesome without the ring and the spire and that adding them will ruin the building

And even those who hate spires must admit that the tower needs some sort of crown. An abrupt ending of the building just doesn't work in this case.

It needs the spire to add the same "marker" effect to the skyline that the North Tower had. It doesn't look right without a spire.
