Interesting piece. As part of the conclusion, it says: "Some of the people helming the evolution of D are working on changing this, and it is my hope that an improved D will emerge in the not-too-distant future." I found this a little vague. It might have been useful to briefly discuss what types of things would help fix these issues or what specifically people are working on (even with just a few links or a footnote).
