I doubt anybody is arguing with you.  I think most agree that the Project Browser is a great step toward a modern editor.  But the capabilities lacking in the Project Browser have been pointed out numerous times -- see the mail archives.  Perhaps a better question to ask is why these have been pointed out repeatedly and not acted upon, or at least acknowledged.

To my mind the simple solution would be to have multiple layout modes (tree, list, column) and the ability to detach chunks of the hierarchy into a separate window by double clicking or dragging. That would open up a world of possibilities for copying and moving objects around.
