Then you would be wrong. Until 5.2, the taint.log often blamed the wrong addon for having caused the taint.

With regard to the changes you're proposing, I don't work for Blizz, so I'm not in a position to answer for them. That said, the taint system is very lightweight. Adding a good bit of functionality (logic) to it would create a non-trivial impact on performance. Humans are quite good at that kind of work... dump the raw data to a linear file and allow the sentient being to apply its skills to working out what happened if/when they need to, versus, penalize everything because someone might want to have a look and is unwilling to work backwards through the output. Meh.

What people don't get is that I am, ultimately, an artist at heart.
My brush has two colors, 1 and 0, and my canvas is made of silicon.
