If anything, it proves there's tons of development.
As far as any other possible arguement against your lame, bias, and generally bad arguement for NaruSaku, I'll let I'MNOTCRAZY handle it, if he doesn't mind. I'm too wiped out to poke holes in it right now.
I can NOT believe you!!! Posting a link to a manifesto that you didn't write instead of arguing!!! I'm appalled!!! But I don't mind being let to grind the lame, biased, and generally bad arguement for NaruSaku into sawdust. XD

Naruto hasn't really got much of a clue that Hinata even holds him in such a high regard.
I believed it was clearly obvious that Naruto held deeper feelings for Sakura when he not only smiled and walked away in the hospital scene, but he smiled despite himself when she begged him to bring Sasuke back and promised that he would.
Personally, I sincerely doubt that Naruto saw Sakura as "competition" against Sasuke. Doubtless, there was jealousy, but to actually suggest that he would go for a girl because she liked Sasuke (that is what you said, isn't it?)? That's just not Naruto's character.
Honestly, I'm not trying to start a debate. I just don't see the things in NaruHina/HinaNaru that you see, and I probably never will. It wasn't meant to disrespect you (or anyone else for that matter).
1st off, the order is traditionally male first. That is how things have been done and that is how they will remain to be done. As for how Naruto doesn't realize her affections, that could EASILY change and there's always the prevolent chance of Naruto developing his own feelings towards her. Just by looking at her, you can see how that would arise. Of all of the rookies, she changed the most, not just in wardrobe, but in her actual physical appearance for the better. MUCH better. Why would Kishi do this? To get through to a thickheaded, oblivious, perverted guy who would respond to some close encounters with her. That is the only reasonable explanation.
I don't see how that has ANYTHING to do with love on a non-platonic level. That is, again, easily classified as more brother-sisterly. Deeper? Yes. Romantic? NO.
He, consciously, did not. But there was obviously some influence from her chasing after Sasuke... UT is better at explaining this...
Honestly, you started one by saying what you did, whether you meant to start one or not. If you are going to offend someone's fandom, expect their wrath.
