I agree with that. I do not need sophisticated mesh editing in Moray as
there are several excellent other programs around which can do that. I only
would need good mesh conversion/export from Moray, which it does already
quite satisfactorily, imho.

Absolutely true! I second that!
I use Moray quite often, either for building a complete scene, or for
building separate objects, depending on the way I want my scene to grow. And
it is so easy to wrap up everything together (Moray, external meshes) into a
final POV-Ray scene!
