I ask the question, why the Amiga OS / WB never came with more support for VGA modes anyway? Is it due mainly to the limitations of its native hardware.

Everything pertaining to the Amiga seems to be a real pain the arse sometimes..
well in the days of yawwn, when hi-resolution monitors ment mega-uber-bucks !!! like several hundreds for a 15" monitor only capable of 800x600, I assume the decision was a financial one as TV's were in every home.
