@Watt McCo Let me see if I got the points. A more limited universe of routing/signal path options likely fits the needs of the majority of the marketplace. Maintaining flexibility ala the Fractal/Helix approach makes it harder, sometimes impossible, to simplify certain things as a result. Makes sense - it's all just design choices. Look at the Boss Katana interface...for some it's nirvana, for others it's oversimplified to the point where many things are unusable.
