the primary things that should be fixed
One and two are things that should be suggested to the developers, not hosting, since they would require a change in how the WP software works. One of the things about Open Source software is that you get the code and you can do anything you want with it. (As long as you retain copyright on it of course.) You can find a page of methods for helping here.
Number there is again your opinion and you feel that the theme was created was incorrect. All themes that are available can be modified.
Again, it sounds like you need to be with paid hosting so you can modify the theme in your own way. It sounds like that free blogging is not something that’s right for you.
drmike: what you are saying is that a theme which does not support sorting links is not a bug but only an opinion.
Fine. But saying that free bloging is not for me I disagree with. Saying that free blogging with WP is not for me, i am still trying to figure out for myself and my authors. I’m only comparing WP.com to other free systems already out there.
I think what cyphunk was saying is that the option in the admin panel for sorting links is there, but certain themes don’t support it. I would think that everything in the admin panel should be supported by the themes? Maybe I have the wrong end of the stick?
I personally love WordPress.com though so keep up the good work! :D

Correct it is not a “bug” per se. Different designers of themes have a wide variety in what they think is the correct way to code a theme.
That doesn’t make it a “bug” it just makes it something other than what you desire. Having said that I would agree, most are of the opinion link sorting should be in each theme. Many of the themes don’t allow link categories to be separated is another example. As a result you must decide between a theme you like and one that parses out the link cats. It limits your options.
On the issue of image placement I totally agree. Example: I just switched to the Andreas theme. The CSS for the theme contains styling for imgs to be floated left or right with text wrap in a div. When the img url is wrapped in the correct div class the html gets stripped out.
However I have seen some available themes that do wrap text and provide padding around the imgs. But frankly I haven’t had time to check the source code and follow up.
it turns out that this theam (Benevolance) was meant to have Categories but there is a BUG that is causing them not to show up:
Perhaps WP.com can use their weight to have whomevers responisibility it is to fix the bug (who should it be: WP.com, WP.org, the author of the theme? These days everyone is shifting it elsewhere)
