This has been one of the limitations of Studio One Artist per the entire life of the Software and it has been by design in order to provide a very amazing core embodimentof the Professional Version to PreSonus Customers. Studio One Artist by itself is a very powerful entry level DAW; which comes with quite a bit of stock content, plugins and tools right out of the box.
The copy of Studio One you that came free with your AudioBox is also sold separately for $99.00US
The AudioBox also sells for $99.00US and comes with software that also retails for $99.00US.
Some of the features you are asking about would greatly increase the cost of the hardware and software package as well as it would close the tiered gap between the Professional Version that sells for $399.99. Every DAW manufacturer makes "lighter" versions of their Professional-Grade DAW and in order to do so, there is a certain level of separation between the Professional Level Version that includes things like the Project Page and Mastering Suite. For example, Ableton has a Lite Version, Pro Version and Suite Version.
PreSonus has always provided a Version Comparison Chart that clearly lists the features of each paid version of its DAW.

Additionally, PreSonus has also continued to add features and content to Studio One over the course of each version's lifespan. Not something that you see many other Recording Software manufacturers do.
