The general state of SSIS as an Industry Standard

I wanted to solicit the feedback of the SSIS forum experts, as to their take on the state of SSIS as an industry standard application for processing files.ÃÂ I've been using SSIS for close to a year, and have implemented some pretty complex solutions using it.ÃÂ And from the beginning, I found myself annoyed by many of its quirks and limitations, some of them surrounding seemingly basic principles.ÃÂ Even more annoying, is the fact that Microsoft seems to dismiss these limitations, as if they're not important.ÃÂ With the release of SQL Server 2008, their obvious lack of attention to SSIS evident by it's minuscule enhancement list makes me feel that the support is not there -- by the industry, and therefore, by Microsoft.
I care, because I've found SSIS making my life easier, overall, when it comes to processing data from and to files, and I can see its potential.ÃÂ But on the other hand, I am concerned that I (and the company I work for) may be investing too much energy into a technology that does not seem to be gaining support by the industry -- and again, consequently, by Microsoft.
Is SSIS going to continue to just be a back-burner solution, just used by a niche group of individuals, or will it eventually catch on and become more of an industry standard, and ultimately require Microsoft to put more of their own invest
