I don't actually agree with arms in other poses, but I can see why you might! I think that the current pose is synonymous with LEGO, and introducing more poses would change that. Just my piece.
I agree. I saw some jointed arm prototype pieces that I think were made by the same guy who made Little Armory pieces (were those the ones you were thinking of, andhe?) and while they were certainly a neat concept, they're pushing the boundaries I have for minifigures.
I don't really have a problem with the arm length on minifigures with short legs, though. I feel if the arms were any shorter/smaller, they would look very strange compared to the rest of the minifigure. But that's just my 2 cents, of course.
