Littlestone has it right I reckon, you should only "own" the monument for as long as you're there. That's the perfect compromise, surely?

The very desire for monuments to remain undisturbed by any form of offering is an imposition of a particular value set onto others. Saying "adopt my value set and appreciate a site in the way that I consider acceptable" is no compromise at all.

Again, I don't say this as a fan of offerings - never felt the desire to leave anything myself - but it's just not as clear-cut as you imply.
