It's harder to make e.g. illustration that is ot be printed on specified area. I'd love to have more "real-world-like" sizes (canvas, brush sizes, resolution, parameters). But thats me, and not the exact list for that ;), besides I presume somebody touched that earlier, and the authors are well aware of both pros and cons of it.
