The problem is that every feature implies additional complexity
and support costs. Moreover, in case of trailers - certainly
additional security concerns.
Just adding all possible features won't work, as you will end up
with a huge and bloated piece of junk. And that's why I asking
for real-world use cases to make sure features added are in fact
needed and benefits from features added outwheigh support costs.
In case of trailers, there is additional argument of trailers
being [mostly] unused for almost twenty years since introduction
