People buy Megas for seriously high price
and you can't even offer full features of the chip?
Are you saying it's cheap?
Why do I have to create my own design if the official one can be improved?
Compared to a new car? Of course. Compared to the price of cup of coffee? No.It was the whining attitude that I objected to.
If you really want to break out more pins, make your own board.
Could you please in the next Mega revision allow easy access to all the pins Mega2560 offers. Instead of 5GND female headers, remove a few and add access to input capturing, analogue comparing and XCK pin. What is the reason this has not been done yet? People buy Megas for seriously high price and you can't even offer full features of the chip?
If you don't like the design, design your own.
