This is the changelog for KITKAT,gives good insight into whats changed and whats new;
My last comment sounds really showy but I am no expert..I have used Darky's ROM'S when Sammy Galaxy S had that slow RFS file system and used ODIN hundreds of times.I am not familiar fully with all the other stuff and never done Cyanogen mod.You can know a lot about stuff but still be be outfaced by things when it comes to the real deep tech stuff..
I am swatting up now but I suppose all these ROMS will be new for Nexus 5 but principle of installing Cyanagen mod the same.I think I have unleashed a whole new lot of stuff for me to swat up on..

"pure android experience" = looks ... more clearify urself and then comment
nexus phones doesn't have Bootloader apps (only stock of google apps ) they're easily rootable and unlockable , they eat much less battery cause no modifications are made like smart stay and I don't even know what!
whoever going from a feature phone (you call it dump phone ) to smartphone will go for galaxy or xperia, cause they do software promotion by adding these gimmick features!!
so please keep your mouth shut
