Since I seem to have sparked this debate by using the term "no-name stunmen", allow me to retort.
I was in no way trying to say that what they did was without merit or undesereving of attention. In fact, my point was ironic - these guys, as you said yourself, often do the bits that we pay to see stars pretend to do. My point is that there aren't many stuntmen you can name and attribute to specific stunts. Vic Armstrong is probably the most famous non-Asian, and he's a 2nd unit guy now. Or maybe the late Richard Farnsworth. The fact is, until these guys die, move into choreography or become actors, you don't normally hear their names. I was trying to save words and stay on topic. Please, in future, do not put words in my mouth. If you have a problem with my wording or do not understand what I meant due to my use of words, please ask for clarification - don't act high and mighty and accuse me of inferring something I did not intend.
I admit, my usage here was perhaps misleading. But it was not inappropriate or deliberately offensive.
So fuck off.
