I agree that ft8 is a very poor mode to exchange data. Js8call is well designed cross between psk and ft8 and justifiably useful in exchanging data but few people use it. 

I think psk and other digital modes will rebound when band conditions improve.  Given the choice between very qsos and ft8 many have chosen ft8.

Well, yes.  But ARRL as a membership organization has additional goals not directly related to those stated.  I imagine they would tend to go with whatever get the "numbers" up.
