The constraints are what makes it interesting. That's why I prefer auxlangs. There is a definite goal and parameters to work within. Creating an auxlang is more like an engineering problem to be solved. I don't realistically expect any of my auxlangs to be used (though there has been some interest), it's just an interesting mental excercise to create them.
