You still make no sense.

I have needs, and from them I proceed to instruments. I pick the best instrument to satisfy my need. And in the process, by the way, I am a insatiable fanatic for optimization.

Your hard-to-handle expressions (here with reference to this quoted one) may seem to be read as "I now have this thing, now what's the best I can do with it". To be literally explicit: assuming this in quotes is your perspective, and assuming its reasonable sides, taken exclusively as you seem to be suggesting it is kind of blind to that other perspective, which is the natural one.

EDIT: I had a sudden enlightenment, and I now suspect that your statement may had been "EPD is not optimal for a number of tasks it may be assigned". If that is the case, what's new? What's to conclude? LCD is not optimal for the tasks it is normally assigned, when you remove it from its comfort zone: caves! (EDIT2: no, my rush: actually LCD is strongly suboptimal especially in caves.)

By the way: Mobac (Mobile Atlas Creator), has a very good code, extremely well organized and readable, and a building process that is "one command away".
So it was next to a breeze to add the option to create the map tiles as "PNG, 16 shades of grey" - which on EPD optimizes (halves) the map file size.

I had not proposed the addition of such option to the author, but that's quickly done.

Apparently, Jezetech has demoed a 10.3" ereader with a frontlight so it seems that it is possible. Hopefully, Onyx will follow suit with their next Note whenever that should be.

Later in the video we get to see the P10C with its 10.3" screen. The neat thing about this model is it’s the first 10.3" ereader demoed with a frontlight, and the lighting actually looks nice and even on the large screen.

I suspect they will need to convince E Ink to make one. Generally Onyx is not in the screen business. I do think E Ink should figure out that there is a need for this product. Onyx did get them to build more 9.7" devices after they claimed a lighted 9.7 was not available for Carta displays although they did not up the PPI.

I sent to Onyx the inquiry about USB-OTG and they answered that is not supported and I didn't like that answer... for now I don't need it because I have other tablets for that task, but was an answer from a company that does not care it's customers.

It is likely just because they can't power a remote device. Read about this in our wiki OTG on an Onyx Boox.
