I'm pleased to say that X-Rite's product manager found my review, and gave me a call to discuss it (an international call from the USA to Australia, for which he stole a piece of his family time in the evening, so I'm very grateful.)
I'm even more pleased to say that he gave me the answers I wanted to hear. In my inital review, I said:
Presumably, X-Rite will eventually issue updates to the software which will address all these problems. I hope they don't take too long.
They will, and they won't, it seems. They will update the software, and they won't drag their feet about it.
I was assured that plenty of other people had expressed my concerns about the software; and that the extra functions are all on the drawing board. Apparently, they were under a bit of time pressure to get the new product in the marketplace, so they didn't have time to include everything before they launched it. New updates will be released before too long to include more features.
This is great news. I'll keep an eye out for the updates, and report on them when they appear.
