I felt the same thing...
As a comparison, I dragged out my ancient Newton, changed the battery,  
and surprise surprise, it still recognises my horrible cursive  
Apple could make it work back in 1995, so it seems a backwards step  
not to be able to include it now.
This was one of the key features missing when I changed to a Palm, and  
had to learn the graffiti script that it used instead of standard
