As far as the reaper business model goes -- price point is one issue, but I think an equally important issue is once someone has paid for reaper, that's all the money they are going to get from that person.

No upgrade fees.

So, the only way to get more money is new customers. Which is why I think it does make business sense to spend money on things that reaper doesnt do already, to try to get more users to spend money.

Cockos only gets money from new users, pretty much, so they will constantly have to attract new ones.

Pleasing people who have already paid might be nice karmically but I don't know how much it directly adds to the bottom line.

Maybe if there was a Hanna Montana edition with a Pink Theme and karaoke mode hrrm
