While there was no world-destroying core meltdown, it was still super-annoying to deal with. Lots of code needed to be touched. I'd really like a comeback of a fixed TLS-SNI challenge as running a port 80 HTTP server just for LE sucks somewhat.

DNS challenges exist and are useful but have more extensive infrastructure requirements. Nothing beats the ease of use of "just put the box up and it'll retrieve its cert as needed".
