Putting the mixer channel on the left of the track view (in Cubase 13) is not that hard programmatically speaking, but a huge boon to many users. Workflow improvements are often just rejigging the UI a bit and don't generally cost a lot of development dollars (unless the feature needs to be entirely rewritten to be usable lol!) So it's often a case that these are rolled in alongside the new flagship features. About all RS has given us on that front are high-resolution graphics, sadly.
