What is missing in SolidWorks Drawings that makes it difficult to create and maintain General Notes?

The topic of drawing general notes comes up from time to time.  Please response on this forum thread with your gripes, complaints, needs, annoyances, (compliments) etc about SolidWorks Drawing when you create and maintain a drawing's general notes.  What functionality, capability, settings, etc is missing in SolidWorks that would make it easier to handle a drawing's general notes.  I'm interested in comments from day to day users, occasional users, as well as CAD Admins.

For example, do you think that the flag number in your General Notes should be linked to flag leaders in the body of the drawing, so that the flags update when your flag note updates in the General Notes?
