40gig is older generation now. No new gear is coming out with 40G on it any more, everything new is 100G QSFP28 as the chipsets cost the same whether they have 40G or 100G ports. Also, the carrier/service provider industry has never embraced 40G, it has always been 10G, 25G, 100G, 200G and now 400G.

Re: LLDP

Please clarify "not doing anything"? LLDP initial support was added in 2016-Sep-30
RouterOS is still missing LLDP-MED which allows the router/switch to signal to VoIP phones which vlan they need to use. This is one of the main reasons for using LLDP, and is a standard feature on switches.

edit: any ETA?
I think Mikrotik are talking about a high-touch(services) router, not a low-touch router. This will be a services router like the CCR that can run PPP/NAT type services, not a "low-touch" router/switch that can just forward frames quickly.
