Actually I said that we've had individual request for various features that are applicable for specific projects and I said that it is
perfectly logical from the developer standpoint, however we are just not able satisfy all these requests - this means to unlock all these features in our SB edition. It would be unfair to satisfy one request and not others if we go that way.
As for developing separate modules that would be available for additional purchase - just as in your example with Falafel, we have let our service partners and community develop and publish these on our marketplace, while we are focusing on core features and enhancements. If we focus on creating side modules (even though some of them overlap existing functionality that we've already created), this would delay the development of core features and the improvement of the current system.
The current functionalities of Sitefinity (forms, workflows, e-commerce) are inseparable part of the system. They cannot be extracted and provided as standalone modules on our marketplace. And providing separate licensing "unlock" options for individual modules would mess our licensing model badly, especially when it comes to renewals or upgrades.
I hope this makes sense.
All the best,
