CI4 CMS

#1
I am not sure if there is already a discussion about this topic but here we go...

I am really excited about CI4, I think that if it is done correctly it will be a framework that has a big chance of becoming the new Laravel in terms of popularity ( a bit hard since Laravel has awesome comunication. It's like Pokemon GO for PHP lol )

In my opinion a powerful CMS built on the same premises of CI4 could turn CI a major success. Imagine if I could say to my clients to use CI4 CMS instead of WP... Wow... That would be awesome... For the first time to put together a real framework and a CMS that can actually become popular.

I notice that there were some CMS like pyrocms but they gave up on CI... At the moment I see there is http://www.getfuelcms.com/ ( I really don't like the name because it gives the idea that it's made on fuel framework and it's also a big name )
All the others seem pretty unfinished or with websites that won't ever appeal users outside from CI that's for sure. Plus all the admins seem so old.. I have to be honest I didn't try any because I feel problems are coming.

Well my idea was to stop building thousands of "weak" CMS for CI and get the community together to build the most powerful CMS that could be used by CI and non CI people. Of course if you wanted to develop plugins / modules you had to do it in CI.

This CMS could be done by community but I think it's really important to be supported by the CI developers otherwise it will be only one more CMS and we will end up once again with 1000 poor CMS instead of a very strong one.

I am sorry that my post isn't very organized but I just wanted to know your opinion on this...
1) Do you feel a CMS is important? For most of my clients is the most important thing therefore I am almost always forced to pick WordPress / PrestaShop
2) Do you feel it is possible to do one powerful CMS instead of many that won't be used?
3) Do you think a CMS based on CI could become a popular CMS among people that were using WP for example?
4) If you think it's a good idea what should be the next steps to start the design of this project?

I can contribute a lot in terms of UI/UX. I can also contribute in terms of programming and I can also bring some input of software engineers on this.

I can also contribute in trying to make this financial sustainable or at least a bit rewarding. I really think it's important to follow the path of WP and Presta for example on this. Otherwise the project will die in short/mid term for sure.
