yes - what *you* need for developing templates, but this is not my point.
My point is end-user usability, which is in some respects bad and should
be improved.

one of my customers use TemplaVoila and it is annoying that I can't give
his customers better usability

yes - but who *makes* the changes to get better usability

>> * easier new page wizard (I could even add creating some default 
>> content for empty page)

in fact the most annoying feature here is is that if you press 'Close'
you get page without title - that is easy to fix in XCLASS for
alt_doc.php + class.tx_templavoila_mod1_wizards.php

But this should also fix in the core. this was a usability bug, which my 
customer comlained to me and forced to fix forking the source code.
