But for weaker system it definitely better in many case. Not everyone would go out to buy new graphics card just to use Jinc3+AR in MadVR though.

What you like about apply sharpening is also debatable since most advance scaling algorithm do some of sharpening itself already. It just that what you want to manipulate /enhance it further or not. It's personal taste.

Also not everyone has AVR as well. Many users would benefit from audio processor.

It's ok that you don't want to include these since you won't use it. But I believe many would benefit from it and may found it suites their taste more. So it's all about options.

Most people don't use ffdshow these days, anymore. It's not actively developed, anymore. The main reason to still use it is if you want to do AviSynth processing. For scaling you should be aware of the shortcomings of ffdshow's spline64: It only works in 8bit, and it has no anti-ringing. In comparison madVR's algorithms work in 16bit+ and have anti-ringing. madVR's spline algorithm should be superior to ffdshow's algorithm for these 2 reasons. Jinc is even better, of course, but also more costly.

I do understand that if you have a very weak GPU but a strong CPU that you may want to use CPU scaling. In that case using ffdshow is a valid option. But even most integrated GPUs these days (e.g. Intel GPUs) are fast enough to run madVR's Spline/Lanczos or at least Bicubic algorithms. So using ffdshow for scaling is really only useful for rather old/slow GPUs.
