I think that's part of it, but what spawned this OP of mine was something called the Source Generators Cookbook, wherein the Roslyn team decided to burden us with more boilerplate code dressed up as "best practices" that simply serves to make things complicated while limiting functionality.

I asked them for a rationale for their project on github and they closed the issue. Probably I could have been nicer about it, but microsoft frustrates me, because this is par for the course with them and I'm sick of it.

They're not the only ones.

They have plenty of good designers on staff. The problem is despite that, they keep having staff churning out nonsense like this and we're all worse off for it, because heaven forbid it ever get adopted by a significant number of people.
Real programmers use butterflies
