I guess I don't get this. Everyone who buys an HTC, Samsung, LG or Sony want straight android to run on it. Now those with Google phones want another manufacturers overlay.

yep.. 5 years ago, "porting" these features to phones they didn't belong on made sense. people spent a lot of time doing it. but now that most carriers are saturated with Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony, basically you name it and that's not even to mention unlocked devices, it does seem like an oddity and a complete waste of time

AS HTC has not comparable chipset to the Nexus5 and Kitkat is new on the HTC One, That makes it harder to port it.
Also it seems like there's not interest to work on that.

I get it, just because something is hard doesn't mean it shouldn't be done.
There are some neat manufacturer features which would make our phones better, example Wifi Calling.
The code for that has been released for a long time yet it's not something google wants to approach.
Nexus 5 isn't pure android it's pure Google with it's own custom launcher so with that why not add some other neat features and launchers why let google control what this phone should be?
This phone was made to be a developer phone so why not develop it to it's fullest potential I'm running a rom based off Nexus 7 KVT49L that's loaded with features. It's not from this site and when someone mentioned this rom the post was deleted. That just seems closed minded and hinders development in my opinion. Luckily I saw the post and checked out the rom.
Think how pissed the manufacturers would be if all their cool features could be incorporated on one phone.

One last thing just because someone has a different opinion than yours doesn't make it wrong.

Peace
