Purchasing a single-homed service from a Tier-1 provider will guarantee that you
are affected by this every time it happens.
s/every time it happens/every time it happens to YOUR upstream

People on Sprint, AT&T, GLBX, MCI, etc. were unaffected. Only people who single-home to L3 or Cogent have disconnectivity.

Now, is being a tier-1 now a good or bad sales argument when selling

It's still a good argument, because Marketing != Reality. :)
