These are valid points, and some of them are related.
For example, "does not have a rich library of functions or standard
procedures" that follows from "does not support packages".
Which might be fixed in https://jira.mariadb.org/browse/MDEV-10591

External languages for stored procedures - that's a very cool feature,
and patches exist for many years. But, apparently, it's more cool than
practically useful? There were almost no requests for it, not when I was
in MySQL, not in MariaDB. And, frankly, I do not know why, this looks
insanely useful to me.
