I have worked in the Enterprise CMS field for most of my dev career. Its pretty much impossible to be "All things to All people" which seems to be the requirement for CMS these days.

There seems to be dozen of CMS users:

* Marketing (free form, reporting, link management)

* Document Management users (structured, access management)

* Store front aka E-Commerce (structured)

* Simple Company Site (blog/wiki)

What I routinely see is CMS' that try to solve all these problems. OR the CMS is basically just a platform/library which really doesn't help the end user.

Part of this is what caused me to start http://snaphop.com which is a mobile campaign management (cms for marketeers) instead of the general mobile content management which has the same problems above except for mobile.
