comment Translate coordinates between different CRS
Wouldn't it be faster to calculate using a common basepoint between the two grids? For a given point in crs2, calculate the distance and bearing to the basepoint, then calculate what point is the same distance and reverse bearing from the basepoint in wgs84?

comment SaveToLayerFile does not properly save symbology
Could it be that when it's a path, since the mapdocument application isn't open, there are some rendering events that aren't triggered, and so the symbology isn't coming down with the data? Assuming this is a service layer still...

comment Meter Coordinates to decimal Coordinates
To convert them you will also need to know the coordinate system that they are from. Do you know this? If you don't, where are these coordinates for? Someone might know common coordinate systems for your area. Does ArcGIS already have the coordinate system for the Feature Class?

comment What is the most annoying fact about the GIS market/industry?
The three programs you listed have been around for a long time now, and they each started from different roots and different niches. They've been building on their own platforms which don't change easily. I would be surprised it the differences are just for the sake of being different. I think the differences aren't bad, they are a testament to the number of ways you can do the same thing. Although simpler, something is lost when everyone conforms. Besides, if it was simple, who would need professionals?
