It doesn't add anything to those guys, so why have them break it?
On the other hand, what about having a young guy breaking it? Well to that I do say that nobody has the right to break it.
Having a young star breaking the streak is a HUGE push to give to someone. Like astronomical. You're talking about a guy putting a stop to one of the biggest streaks in wrestling history. Is there any young guys out there that deserves that opportunity? Keeping in mind that Taker is only realistically going to make it to a few more Manias (I'd say WM 30 will be his last), is there any young stars between now and 5 years time that deserves that honor? IMO, no.
Taker's already got one of the best resumes in the history of the business, but an undefeated Wrestlemania streak as big as 20 (and counting) is just something that will NEVER be replicated. Having someone break it isn't right IMO.
