The intent of the Visio import filter is simple: there was no existing importer of the binary .vsd file format, there was user interest in seeing this in LibreOffice and there were developers capable and willing to do it.

The "only" things holding Draw back are demand from users and developer manpower. If you genuinely want to see improvements, all you need to do is get involved.

Features which are already possible in Draw but do not show when the Visio importer is used should be reported as bugs using the Bug Submission Assistant (more info on submitting bugs here).

Interest in support for new features can be expressed on the user mailing list or on the #libreoffice freenode IRC channel.
