Perhaps you came late to the discussion. Several team members
including myself already mentioned before that we had observed
professionals liking the change and not quite understanding what all
this fuzz is about. You will find it difficult to explain how this was
a figment of our imagination. Perhaps you could start with studying
_actual_ response from the "day to day use" world?

I find it interesting that you rely on official statements rather that
pure and unadorned reality.

While Krita indeed has a strong bias towards digital painting, it just
so happens that quite a few universal and non-painting specific
features managed to crawl inside the application over the last few
year, including, but not limited to:

- PSD importing
- color managed printing
- simple object selection tool (a-la GIMP)
- unified transformation tool

AFAIK, Dmitry Kazakov's work on performance was triggered by his
interest in Krita as a tool for digital photography.

Or here is an interview I did with the team lead and a major
contributor in 2008:

You will find 2nd and 3rd Q/A most enlightening.
