I agree about the 10T. I would happily have a 50-12 and run a 30T or 32T front depending on terrain (based on a 29" wheeled bike). My ideal cassette would be: 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 28, 33, 39, 44, 50. Nice smooth gaps between each gear.  It surprised me when SRAM went from 11 speed to Eagle that they did not change the 42 to a 44 and the 36 to a 39. I agree with some of the comments regarding chain length and derailleur length especially the long derailleur cage grabbing debris off the trail/ forest floor and jamming. This has not been an issue with AXS Eagle as the derailleur cage is not as long and is more tucked out of the way.
