Why is it so difficult to get to Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth settings?

To access basic features, like enabling Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, you have to exit your application and jump through a bunch of settings just to get to a simple switch, or connect to a network. Jailbroken devices already offer a simpler feature -- why can't Apple include something in the drag-down notification center instead?
Location awareness is great, so long as you remember to keep it turned on
Location-based services are very useful, particularly if you need to 'geofence' around a certain area so when you leave work, or home, or anywhere else, you can be reminded to "get milk" or "pick up the kids from school." But when location services are disabled to conserve battery, they no longer work. This major flaw in design could mean millions of users are forgetting to pick up milk on their way home.

One major improvement could be adding subway lines and other transit features, which would be particularly useful for those living in inner cities and major metropolitan areas.
