rigged clothes; would more Linden meshes be better?

Whilst I see the great things that rigged mesh clothing can do, especially in allowing surface detail and a finite thickness, would it have been better for clothes makers if more Linden meshes had been provided?

The Linden skirt has many problems, not least the sliders are rubbish and stretching is restricted to a very narrow zone, but it instantly fits and is easily editable. Rigged mesh can be great if bespoke, but will rarely fit another avatar who wants to keep their shape. It is also a complex process that is beyond the reach of most clothes makers. 

Surely it would now be easy for the Lindens to produce a far better skirt mesh along with a similarly rigged upper body, leg and sleeve meshes that likewise are surface draping. Best of all would be a 'whole body' Linden mesh from shoulder to floor allowing one piece dresses, cloaks, coats etc.

Improved avatar mesh work from the Lindens would allow for higher quality universal content. Clothing makers could provide textures that work instantly with mesh clothing layers for the avatar, and user created rigged meshes cannot compete with a standardized unversial  body mesh because its SL's avatar customization tools that allow us to create clothing textures, skins, tattoos, etcetera all 100% guaranteed to work with every avatar out there.

 People with user created avatar mesh bodies will find their clothing, skin and tattoo options extremely limited, if not entirely nonexistant.

Long ago in the mesh office hours, they implied that after mesh settled in, that work might begin on "Avatar 2". The implication was that many of the problems with mesh clothing would be solved... and I assume that all sliders would be accounted for.

 

I hope that is still the case.

Plus, they risk that their new mesh avatars are replaced by a note from LL informing them that the avatar has been DMCA'd out of existence.
