Hi Gene and list
I agree with you on this. However, I have heard comments that, because NVDA, and other speech packages, does not do this, that and the other thing, for someone, it is made out as useless.
My advice to such people usually is, if you can do better, do it.
On the other hand, how else would the developers know what the community, and here I refer to the NVDA community’s, needs are if we cannot list our needs.

I don't think people should censor themselves in terms of discussing features or criticisms from gratitude. Where should such gratitude prevail or tone down criticism and where not? I've done many volunteer presentations over many years on many topics related to blind people using computers and programs. I most emphatically do not want gratitude to stop legitimate and civil discussion and criticism of my work. I can't speak for the developers but I will say that for myself, I find the let's be so grateful that we tone down or don't criticize position to be disturbing and counterproductive. Appreciativeness is one thing. Gratitude, if taken too far, can be distructive.
