How can we improve InDesign?

Add Anti-Alias Intent to text for graphic export

As web publishing has been an important part of InDesign since 5.5, it would be extremely helpful if anti-alias intent could be determined, either at a paragraph level or on output. Both Photoshop and Illustrator have this feature, and without it, export jpeg and png for web use is not up to publishing quality.

Relatedly, when an image is placed in a document at a scale other than 100%, it would be helpful if the downsampling/upsampling intent could similarly be chosen by the user.

Currently, the only way to produce publishable web materials from InDesign is to export a lossless PDF, open it in Photoshop at 300ppi, and then downsample to 72ppi. It would be much more convenient to export directly from InDesign, but the quality simply isn't up to it without these additional options.
