My philosophy too.

It is because LaTeX produces such nice (and predictable) output 
compared to Word that I have started using it. I think many details 
date back to what was common on computers 20 years ago.

Sure changing these things can be hard. Sure insuring cross-platform 
compatibility could be hard. And sure I'm not the one who will do the 

But we should have such a "wish list" for programmers in search of a 
challenge or simply inclined to make LaTeX better.
