Not so... there's also a Community Council. I am a Community Council member. As part of that role, I try to bring stuff to the attention of the devs, especially when things seem to have people really upset. I did post to the Community Council forum the various TLE itemization and raid threads, and suggested that they have the dev team address publicly what the plan is going forward. I can guess (well heck, I know) that the dev team put in long hours in the run-up to the expansion release, and now we're into the holidays. Comp time, vacation time, and holiday schedules can reasonably be expected to affect how many dev man-hours they have available for this stuff. I personally would have not released a drop date for the TLE move to the next expansion until it really was ready, but once they did, they have to balance whether it's going to create more torch- and pitchfork-waving mobs to delay release, or to put it out and have to mess with it later. I do play one toon on Fallen Gate, and yeah, I wish itemization were better.
