New but hey - this software needs some tweaks

I'm really new to Motion, but quite experienced with AE. I must say at this point I find it limiting but it could just be my lack of knowledge.

So can someone confirm these things I've discovered:

Motion only supports one composition per project?
You can't change the framerate on an existing motion project? I've seen one workaround here with templates..
You can't re-interpret the frame rate in other applications (eg Compressor or Quicktime)
Motion crashes a lot (I was really surprised at this, but this is a octo mac, completely up to date and I've crashed it at least 10 times and used it for about 8 hours in total) - I've sent reports to Apple but get no feedback on solutions.

I reckon the main ones are supporting more than one comp per project and changing frame rate - I'm sure the crashing (for instance when I went to open the help file) will hopefully be solved as the software matures. But it can be very annoying. Reminds me of the early days of Boris RED...
