Most of them don't, actually.  Whoever told you otherwise was wrong.

And your ``problems'' are actually features as far as most Emacs
developers are concerned.  The fact that Emacs behaves almost
identically on all platforms is considered by most Emacs developers
(and by many users) a virtue, not a disadvantage.  Lennart is in
minority here.

So there's little chance your suggestions, even if you take them up
through the proper channels, will be accepted.  Using Alt instead of
Meta in the manual means that we will need to have several variants of
the manual, one each for every platform/keyboard where the Meta key is
not Alt by default.  That is a step backwards, not forward.

It's your choice, of course, but you might as well stop your campaign,
and use the energy elsewhere.
