For whatever it's worth, a major complaint I've heard about LDraw is that it's too complicated to get going—there's this whole constellation of independently-developed applications, and an independent part library, and they all must be made to play together manually. Many non-technical users will give up.

Obviously, the "problem" of independently-developed applications is the key strength of the system. But having to figure out how to install a part library and associate it with the editor before you can even start building is a significant and less-than-necessary obstacle. I believe it's better to reduce the friction of the first-run experience, then let the user graduate to installing the latest part library later.
