What is hurting is people demanding features without specifying what
the problem is, how it will be solved or what the impact on users or
developers will be, and then taking up everyone's time with complaints
when they don't get magical flying unicorns instantly.

If you want something, you either have to do the work yourself, or find
someone to do it. And here's the thing: you're assuming that "the work"
is trivial, which for some of the things you're discussing it really
isn't. The PMS wording is the trivial bit that comes at the end once
the problem and solution have been worked out.
