I disagree that thoughtful grammarians are going to disagree. There's been general agreement for years among non-pedants that there is nothing wrong with splitting infinitives, provided you're using a language in which they are two words in the first place.

The "rules" against the passive voice have more to do with keeping the reader interested than the grammar of the thing.
