comment Can I write footnotes as I do cite references?
@mbork Hey, no offence taken! I would usually agree with you, but in my case some of the footnotes are so monstrous! that they really do break the flow of text (imagine paragraph long footnotes with multiple citations)! Thanks for fold commands, I do use emacs but seldom remember the tex-specific macros.

comment Biblatex time field in addition to date
It would be nice if I could somehow reuse all the functionality of date type in my time type and then add additional functionality for rendering time.

comment Why are there no alternatives to TeX, or, why is TeX still used?
I believe what OP is asking is why hasn't been a typesystem like tex implemented in a more recent language like python, ruby, heck even Haskell - which lends itself nicely to embedded DSLs. All of these languages have nice error reporting tools, fast and tested compile times and well-documented libraries.
