Unless I'm missing something you are echoing what I said:

I was asking whether those are the only drawbacks for Emacs dev - they are the
only ones I could think of.  You seem to be confirming that they are (and
emphasizing their importance).

"Shipping" seems to have disappeared from the discussion, so I suppose my guess
that we don't do any shipping was also accurate.

Thanks for the clarification.
