Thank you for your feedback. We have released support for report extensions with 2021 Wave 1. With this you can make additive changes to existing dataitems, add new nested dataitems, modify request page and add additional layout (but not modify existing base layout). Watch the Virtual Launch session on What's New in AL and Visual Studio Code for more, as well as Docs Report extensibility - Dynamics 365 Release Plan | Microsoft Docs

Thank you for your feedback. We thought we would release this earlier, but have now reverted status back to "Under Review" as we assess our use of such rich-text controls. We are still considering adding it to our (longer term) roadmap.

Extending keys in a base table from an AL table extension

When developing AL table extensions, it is possible to create one or more keys, but the scope of that key is solely in the extended table (not the base table that is being extended). VS Code will not allow you to create that key if the key references one or more fields found in the parent table...

The proposal is accepted, and we have started working on stabilizing the tests. It will require multiple work items to get it fully done, so you can expect small incremental improvements over a period of time.
The tests should already be more stable on v21.0.0.0.

Improve Development Experience performance in VS Code

Thank you for your feedback. We are continuously trying to optimize the VS Code performance when authoring and deploying AL extensions. The most significant impact is to limit working with large monolithic solutions, avoiding loading and compiling all objects in memory. This require componentization of the base application as well as custom solutions over the coming years.
