If you look through Bugzilla you will find numerous tickets like yours. Start
with the meta tickets under Blocks, but you will easily find completely
different issues. Which one is more important?
In an Open Source projects volunteers do the tasks they like. Working on the
old spaghetti code is boring and requires a deep understanding of all
dependencies. It's a challenge to find someone who is willing to fix your
Microsoft develops great products, and Office is an outstanding and beautiful
product - where thousands employees work in advance of the actual
implementation. Would the community agree when donations are spend for this on
a large scale?
And finally they also struggle with the complexity. The UX team is currently
looking into the issue of numbering and outlines. And the tremendous
flexibility makes it hard to even understand the functionality - not to mention
a better UI. Well maybe we get there :-). But the point is, good usability
means to restrict a product to the really needed functionality. And removing
legacy functions is never accepted by the users, unfortunately.

I suggest you send your general opinion to the mailinglist, where discussions
usually find more resonance. On Bugzilla it doesn't improve anything.
