Why there is no adequate API for so long time to program office suite?

The original intent of the API was to directly control the internals
using the existing objects built-in to LO. It was not intended to be
used as you suggest. The existing API has certain advantages in many
ways, sadly, accessibility is not one of them. More specifically, it is
confusing at best until you have spent a lot of time looking at it.
Off hand, there is no specific reason that wrapper methods could not be
written to do this sort of thing, but that requires a volunteer to
choose to do it and have community buy in (or I suppose that some of
these things could be done as an add-on or extension). So, then it just
needs someone who has sufficient need, desire, or money to choose to do it.
Not sure that is what you meant to ask or not.... I do most of my work
in basic, so my tendency would be write a Basic macro to do the work.
This would not make it available (I think) from your example code, only
from Basic. I think it would need to be full UNO implementation. If you
see a real need and are able to build support for this, you could be the
person to make this happen. Off hand, I would say that creating the new
language or extension would be the most difficult part. The example as
you present it would flat out not work since the calls would probably
have to somehow be related to a document or thing. In other words, you
can't just call "insertString" without context (I think anyway), so you
would need some kind of object from which to call insertString. It turns
out that your cursor object supports this call directly. Now i think
that I am rambling.
Oh, and I see a real need for a simplified API but I do not have the
time to lead such an effort; sadly.
