1. Gaps exist because no one has contributed the work. Windows is a huge API surface (that just keeps growing) so there will likely always be some API that needs a data driven custom action written or enhanced. Volunteers are always appreciated.
2. The bug template should have pointed out to you:
Issues are triaged at [online meetings](https://www.firegiant.com/blog/), generally held alternate Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. Pacific time (UTC-7/UTC-8). Meeting requests are sent to the [wix-devs](http://wixtoolset.org/documentation/mailinglist/#wix-devs) mailing list.
So, unless you found a serious bug, you're not likely to get a lot of feedback on issues opened between triages. If you want to join discussion about developing the WiX Toolset, join the wix-devs mailing list.

I'll clone the dev branch.
Much of the time I work with air-gap, locked-down environments deploying to traditional and private cloud compute enclaves. No access to sonatype, github or other types of artifact and code repositories. The only way to install is via physical media. If I need to stand up a chef or puppet server, it would take about a year to get through the process.
Unfortunately, we work on a much shorter release schedules. As a result, enterprise configuration features normally placed in other systems are forced into the msi installer.
Normally, I would write installer(s) using C++ or C#, this is my first attempt to use wix for this type of enterprise application deployment. I'm finding some gaps in the wix feature set supporting enterprise application deployment and modular installer design, the latter is likely due to missing recipes and a best practices guideline. I have added a feature request/bug to the github site. After 4 days, there is no reply comment which does not give me a "warm feeling" about formal improvement proposals.
For example, I would like to use wix as a motor deploying into Amazon Lambda.
