You mean how 99% of players would just make their landscape totally flat so that they wouldn't have to deal with hills and valleys?
Not that I agree with the notion of "NO LANDSCAPING EVER!" but to say that terraforming was a big deal for that "perfect" city is kind of ridiculous also.
I don't know, I think there are a lot of really interesting applications of terraforming to city development. It's kind of a bummer to see this feature just hand waved off because the average gamer is too dumb to imagine how to use elevation and terrain.
