A short answer to your topic question. Yes.
As a rule the people reading and responding in this forum are just other Apple product users like you, not Apple itself. Apple uses its feedback pages (not this support forum) for garnering product feedback or suggestions. Apple Support Communities is an end-user to end-user (i.e., users like you helping other users) technical issue support feature. You should send feedback via:
http://www.apple.com/feedback/ - Apple products feedback links
Vintage and obsolete products - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1752
