I haven't read much on the subject, but I *think* there is practically zero alpha to be had by active management in the inflation-protected bond arena, so costs are even more crucial. So, I could live with ER 0.26% if TIPS were a must-have or if I had to hold bonds in the 401k and AIANX were the most reasonable 401k bond option.

Those sound like perfectly good reasons to consider AIANX in your 401k.
