That, I agree with you.
Back on EAC, I know that it supports MP3 but... I don't see WHY it should be used to rip CDs to MP3s. Any ripper should do fine for that. Lossless wise, although even if I think it's overrated, I think it's almost necessary (or any ripper that can do multiple pass and check for errors and gives a report (log) for exemple dBPowerAmp CD Ripper).
For broken CDs with EAC... I haven't had luck with it AT ALL. I have a CD single here that have 2 tracks skip and EAC isn't able to recover it at all. And, if you check the CD itself, it isn't THAT scratched.
Anyway, for any newbie to ripping, I wouldn't suggest EAC for its complexity. CDex has everything off the bat and will suffice to almost everybody.
