Angry Problems customizing Outlook2007

Office 2003 offers compatibility in customization between Word and Outlook. Macro's and assigned keys in Word also work in Outlook when Word is assigned as editor. I make extensive use of that and I have about 30 macro's assigned to all kinds of key-combinations which I use both in Word and in Outlook. In Office 2007 this is no longer the case. WordMail is imperative for Outlook (meaning I can not choose to have Word as editor) and has its own object structure and also its own template for macro's. After a long time of searching around how to restore the blissful customization offered by Office 2003, I have come to conclude that Microsoft has reduced the usability of Outlook considerably in exchange for greater stability and safety.
My urgent question is, does anyone know whether or not Microsoft has plans to improve on the customization of Outlook i.e. make Word an optional editor again and also have macro's assignable to combinations of keys.
Should there be no plans as such, then I am left no choice but to revert to Office 2003 because the improvements of Office 2007 do not outweigh the setback because of the problems I described above.
I would greatly appreciate an answer and I hope very much for an answer like 'O yes, Office 2010 completely solves your problems'. If it does of course :-).
