Quick Whine #1: OSX Open File Dialog

Ways in which the OSX Open File Dialog is lame. Partial screenshot showing perpetration:

(A small detail first: the (American) date format is lame. ISO is the appropriate format. Mea culpa for not fixing settings, of course.)

Why no file sizes? Why no thumbnails? Why no preview? Why leave the huge space to the right unused?

And if these defaults are designed such as to, I don't know, leave the regular Joe Non-Power-User with a soul unperturbed, why isn't there a small 'settings' icon to click? Or the usual Cmd-Comma for settings?
