I'm sure the important issues marked here were sent as FR as well.

I'm sure too. Some of them, as Simon M and Skiwi have pointed out, have been implemented. Some of them are quite possibly waiting in a list to be implemented when other changes make them practical to do. And others are likely to be sitting in another list of things that only a few users have requested, or that are just not possible to do.
Best Regards, Roy

How nice it would be (as also often requested) if those lists were a bit more transparent. Likely a lot of the fuzz raised here could have been avoided.

From the general to the specific.

Sometimes labels can be too long for the horizontal space available.

It should be possible to manually change the width of a label and have the text in it reflow to multiple lines
It's been in EA for years.

Ctrl+Shift+Y - set to wrap features.
We may be thinking of different things here, in the example below I have used ctrl-shift-y Feature and Compartment visibility to set the option "Wrap Features" for the three entities, viz

This helps with entities contained in a package, but not with the Package name itself, or a <chart>

Re: 8.0 diagram enhancements: label boundary swiml

Being able to label Boundary element swimlanes.
See Naming boundary swim lanes

Also
  • Adjust swim lane widths individually
  • Control placement and formatting of swimlane labels
Not in EA 12
I really think there is a good case for being able to move individual lane or matrix dividers, e.g. by say holding the shift key down while dragging them, so that all the lines to the right/below do not move as well.
