For the record, I thought I did just speak about specifics: custom post types and custom url routing.

My reaction is to think you don't understand my visions because I'm looking to make it more generic not less, and my perception of your criticisms is that you are trying to constrain it to be less so.  Of course that's all my perception which is probably not the reality.

So let's get pass this and try to figure out what works.  Can you explain what you think my vision is (so I can either agree or correct it) and then why you think that vision is too narrow by giving counter examples?
