The statement you quote is bland corporate prose:

from which you deduce that the leadership of Evernote has such a strong animosity to gtd that it can only be expressed by strong vulgarity. It seems likely to me that Evernote is merely focused on its core vision and competency. Because I use Evernote for reference information, and follow David Allan's recommendation to keep reference separate from next actions, I have no need for the functionality you desire.
