Business and VFR traffic doesn't exclusively fly legacy you know! Most of my intra-Europe business flying is done on a combination of FR and BE - so I'd be delighted if a dedicated low-cost pier encouraged a few more low-cost operators to consider FRA as a destination!

Although many people enjoy cheap flights some of those 'cheap' passengers actually spend a lot of money at the airport compared to more frequent flyers. Also like myself if I can grab a cheap flight I will more than likely book a more expensive hotel, on numerous occasions I've used either RY or EZ for a cheap flight and stayed in a five star hotel at my destination.
Although as an British Airways Executive Club Member BA will always be my preferred airline but it doesn't stop me from using the odd 'cheap' flight and I can assure I am not cheap and I wouldn't appreciate a big tent, some Dixie toilets, some beer benches ( I don't drink beer anyway).
Very easy and fast to build: take a big tent, some Dixie toilets, some beer benches....what do need LCC passenger more? They love cheap, so they get cheap..
