Did you really expect them to? I mean I think Rack Extensions are the closest thing we're going to get. Personally, the whole VST support never really bothers me. If I want to use them I just pull up Live and rewire.
Yeah this is why reason is totally not the DAW for me. I cannot imagine making music without my VSTs. Reason's racks may be great, but if Reason doesn't give me the ability to hop on the Internet and download an awesome free VST or fork out some money for something as incredible as Omnisphere or East/West, without buying yet another DAW and rewiring, then yeah I'll steer clear and stick to FL.
But that's just me. I'm the type who likes getting new sounds, editing them a little and using them more than making my own with the plugins offered to me. While I love the idea of making my own, I'm not very good at it and having an orchestral background I'm more used to just browsing through a bigass library and picking the sounds I want. And no matter how big Reason's libraries are, I'm sure I'll always feel the need to expand to new VSTs.
What's the big deal with adding VST support anyway? I know it must be easier said than done but frankly it really limits Reason and if anyone else out there is like me, it must put other people off buying it :(.
