To be honest, I don't really give a toss about niche feature
comparisons: both products have niche features the other doesn't. The
basic requirements in both products are solid. If the niche feature has
customer value, my estimation is that it can easily be added (to either
product).

This isn't a democracy ... it's about choosing the most community
oriented code base so that it's easily maintainable and easy to add
feature requests and improvements as and when they come along. In the
past six months, LIO has made genuine efforts to clean up its act,
streamline its code and support the other community projects that would
need to go above and around it. You seem to have spent a lot of the
intervening time arguing with the sysfs maintainer about why you're
right and he's wrong.
