It could be fun to do a community vote on things like this and see if it lines up.

We can just set up a poll for that, right?

Was curious to read your take and found out I mostly agree with everything.
There is one thing about "traders & builders" though.
"Farmers ...[text cut]... Traders & Builders introduces pigs that fixes this"
For us, it only makes the players that fully grasp the farmer tactics even -more- powerful. It didn't enable less farmer-driven player to make more or better use of farmers. In our family, I grasp farmer tactics best because I have and advantage in "area" concepts while my wife beats me in bluff concepts :) I found out I dominate scoring due to pigs.
Interesting! It might be that everyone in my group already grasp farmers pretty well - they're usually hotly contested in our games. So I might not have considered what happens to the farmer game in this expansion when one player tends to dominate the farmers.
Food for thought!

I've only ever played base #Carcassonne but some of these expansions definitely sound interesting.

Traders and Builders sounds interesting! The only one we have is Inns and Cathedrals, which we like.

I've only played with the mini expansions that come with the new edition... they are fun having a twist is always great.
