Scottchen,
Please elaborate as I am not sure what toilet you are talking about.
On the question of toilet and system, a toilet is a system. If we think of a system as a time-varying configuration fo people, hardware and procedures organized to accomplish a function, as long as you can see a purpose or function to en entity, it is a system.
Re: Gates' toilets, as a GCE Awardee of the Gates Challenge, I want to note that not all of their supported systems (toilets) are hightech and expensive. The GSAP Microflush toilet, which the Gates Foundation supported is now a locally sourced locally made toilet. GSAP has trained local MAKERs in 18 countries around the world creating for them a small sustainable business while they help solve the menacing condition of sanitation in their communities. They typically sell the off-grid fly-and odor-free toilet for $300 of which $200 is for materials and $100 their profit. The toilet is harvested for its rich compost every 2-3 years.
I hope you will elaborate on your postings so that we can understand the points you are trying to make.

Dr.Stephen,
Half a year ago, there was a toilet competition in China funded by Gatets foundation. All the winnners come with advanced and sophiscated systems and claim theie device can turn the waste into drinkingable water...
As for the toilet you mentioned , i think 300 USD is not cheap at all comparing with normal flush toielts.
I would be very please if you could tell me more infomation about it.
best wishes
Scott
