    Even though Layer files have been around for almost a decade, ESRI cannot seem to fix persistent problems that exist with using them for defining and disseminating symbology.  I don't want AVL files because of some nostalgia for the past.  I want AVL files because they work and Layer files don't.  If ESRI doesn't want to support exporting symbology to AVL files, then they should do a better job of fixing Layer files for the purposes of defining and disseminating symbology.
