I agree, but then again "C++" has no budget to allocate, it depends on
contributions from people who are not paid anything to contribute to C++ or
companies that are concerned about issues that make their developers more
productive. If some billionaire got group of highly talented devs and they
worked on a lot of stuff you want(wrote prototypes, wrote nice proposals) I
doubt C++ standardization would reject them. But I do not see something
like this happening soon.
So I hope I am wrong, but I see very little from your list getting fixed in
next 5y(except maybe networking).
