Seriously, I would like to thank all contributors and developers of the Core for enhancing and improving the display and formatting options available to the end user (before it gets in the hands of a theme developer).
I am basically a Copy and Paste type creature. As an end user, I want as much control as possible with my website's Content. I view themes as Display Organization, with which I frequently change or switch as I alter or try new content.
The more display, formatting, and organizational choices provided by Core, the less obligation I have to any particular theme. I know that is NOT what a theme developer wants to here, but it provides a more stable environment for the end user. I also understand that too many core options move WordPress away from being a "lean, mean, fighting machine".
At any rate....thank all core developers for contributing to the enhancement of Posts Formatting, and the Theme Customizer. I like them both of them, a lot!
