Absolutely - but as the vote here shows, people are not interested. They like the current layout and want to keep it.Doesn't mean there can't be room for improvement.
This is basically the issue here. It's not the keyboard itself, it's that a few folks are obsessed with the layout and won't accept the fact that the majority of those who voted (and if you don't vote, your opinion can't count) don't want their proposals. And because of that they won't let it go. ED has made his opinion clear - you can have your single-button space key if you want to; you'll just have to make your own case and PCB to go with it once the files are available to mod. Good luck sourcing your production systems for that.As mentioned in the other thread at Ask EvilDragon, I hope people consider the con/flex/sym layouts and see what proposals they really prefer. E.g., comparing the con vs. flex layouts given in the OP.
This happened with the Pandora - there was a vocal minority that spent a long time and a lot of posts putting different keyboard layouts to the team; OPT ignored them and went with the same layout that they'd started with during the prototype phase.
I expect this trend to continue - people will keep on debating and refining their layouts right up until the Pyra is launched, and they'll not stop until they realise that they're expected to basically produce their own hardware if they want something different.
But don't let that you guys stop you, these threads really are very amusing
