Eight years ago you would have been lynched for such heresy. What you wrote was the best argument for 'juniorization' I've ever read.
I kid of course because I suspect you don't really mean to call for juniorization but are making the same complaint I have often made the last few years...."What the hell is up with all the 1x1 dots??!!"
Looking back at the sets that were coming out in the late 90's and early 2000's, I can see why. A lot of huge, basically one-off pieces...uhh, SPUDs, I guess (I'm not good with LEGO slang, had to look this up.) But yeah, mostly talking about the 1x1s and 1x2s that boost piece count but don't really
add value to the set. I'm all for both high piece counts and variety, but if you really need a few hundred 1x1 or 1x2 plates, get them on Bricklink. I'm sure you could find some place to buy them in bulk for a few dollars.
With that said, I don't know how much use this piece would get, but after running across this issue while taking a few sets apart recently, I would REALLY
appreciate it if they came up with a 1x2 two-thirds thickness brick. After trying to pry those suckers apart again and again I often decide just to leave the 1x2 plates stuck together for all eternity.
This would only eliminate one part-per-piece and would be a rarity, but the way I look at it, I've already lost those two pieces because I can't pull them apart very easily and usually leave 'em how they are. Just a minor quibble, not really holding out hope for this
