After being lucky enough to attend a meeting with the Adobe team in which this presentation was shared (thanks Mark!), I have to say that I am more interested in see additional vector tools added to InDesign, than I am having them fix Illustrator.
I currently keep two iMacs on my desk, one with Freehand and an old operating system, and one with CS5 and the newer OS. I have been getting rather good at doing the bulk of my work in ID, using Illustrator to just open up EPS' for cut and paste into ID. I explained all of this to the Adobe team and expressed my desire for ID to be a more complete designer piece of software as I have no intention of spending any more time or money trying to fit Illustrator into my life. They seemed interested in that concept. So many of the "issues" I have with Illustrator have already been "fixed" in InDesign. Maybe it's the transition from PageMaker, but ID is just easier to use.
It's a thought anyway.
