> I do not consider buried/blind via a very high-end feature.

None of the prototype offerings I use inclue b/b vias as options...
they're only included in much more expensive offerings.

> gschem attributes are not high-end yet very flexible.

Irrelevent.  Emacs is more flexible than gschem but I wouldn't want to
lay out a board with it.

PCB has a simplistic model of a board, which works well with a
simplistic FAB offering.  Changing that model is hard, no matter how
many times people tell us it's easy or desirable.
