Haha. You described what many of us were expecting and wanting in KS5.

There was talk of wanting some accessory packs packs to change the feel of the wonderful dungeon pieces that have been put out. things like LED sets, different themed inserts for the new Vaulted pieces, and magnetic pieces. Maybe you could re-introduce packs for the different walls for those that missed them this KS. I know that I will have a nice collection of pieces after my DoD gets here, and I would love ways to change the look and feel without having to buy a lot more walls and floors. I also think that a pure add-on KS would give everyone some really nice new pieces to really bring their existing dungeons to life while letting DF plan out their next big creation.
Once you have a decent collection of basic pieces, you want stuff to spice it up or be used in a new way.
There was a lot of cool stuff in KS5, but many items require you to buy some quantity of the new vaulted arch walls and floors. If the scope was much smaller for this, I would have felt fine giving a bit more to get decent amount of the new design for variety's sake. But there were so many things that are way more important to enhance what I have, that I did not want to get much if any of the new vaulted walls (and I already have enough basic floors for now). They could have just used basic KS1 style walls (even if resculpted) instead of the vaulted walls to keep the prices down a bit for newbies and make all the extra parts like elevations which have sculpted pillars blend more seamlessly with Classic Dungeon tiles (which of course don't have pillars). There are plenty of companies that offer older products during a Kickstarter to go along with the new stuff, since you must have something in the campaign that is new.
An example is for me is Gorgon Tiers. I would have preferred it didn't have the walls or 2x2 floors. That would have lowered the unpainted price from $222 to somewhere between $130-150. There there could have been something like instructions to, "Get one add-on pack A and two packs of C of the new vaulted pieces to complete this Gorgon Tiers encounter layout." Separating the basics into several packs (which they actually did) and building "encounters" that use multiples of the basic pieces would give examples of cool builds that are simple to replicate by just buying the Special Pieces Pack plus whatever needed Basics Packs. The "Basics" packs could mean the new vaulted walls/corners, floors, passage pieces.
