Just make a comparison between McNeels Rhino's API and that of ArchiCAD. There is a more people and companies that already are using McNeel's Rhino API than that of ArchiCAD's, and by this way you may encourage more people to adopt it, it's something like throwing the ball over their wall. And about the size, don't forget that the size of ArchiCAD's user manual is 600+ pages

I would like to thank you for explaining the part of the API in relation to Rhino users, you have just expressed my idea in words that I didn't know how to express.
But most important Graphisoft, just don't recreate past error in new ways and in new dates, for example, are you aware that until today the most important information source to learn GDL, is "The GDL Cookbook" written by David Nicolson-Cole, a 20 years old book ????!!!!
By the way, GDL should be defended as the excellent BIM object creation tool, not that of Revit Families.

LIBRARYGLOBAL is a function that should be used in 2d and 3d to reach the parameter values of an MVO dialog, and change the object’s behaviour based on that. It should not be used in parameter script, and it does not make any effect on parameter values of placed objects.Source:
