AN3404, How to do EEPROM Emulation Using Double Flash Array

This brings back a question I've had for many years: these workarounds show the widespread need for EEPROM. So instead of now providing 2 flash arrays, so that one can write to the other, why not finally (or better from the beginning) implement a bit of EEPROM. Especially because many Microcontrollers have not much ram to put code in.
For this very reason we've abandoned using these series of microcontrollers; all our other chips simply have EEPROM onboard. These chips needing external EEPROM are just a big nuisance.

[this might not be the right place to moan, but where else?]
