You consider small change in stats as gear treadmill? It's not like you can't enjoy any part of gw2 without this new stuff. I'm personaly still playing mostly in rares and not80level exotics and I can do just fine anywhere I go.
As for gap... they mean cost gap. Cost of exotics is much much much lower than cost of legendaries. So they want to put something expensive in between, so people that are not prepared to go for legendary can have some smaller (yet reasonable) goal to go for.

For now. So far they've shown by sneaking this and other nerfs into the game (nerfs to loot to force people to either use expensive 1 time only magic find buffs to get any loot outside of dungeons that worth anything) and failing to fix the glaring problems with the professions like the engineers glaring miss problem that's still there since bwe3 that they have some serious priority problems and honesty problems.
There was no gap, they created a gap by adding stats to this gear all because they wanted to listen to the tiny minority in the gaming community that has forgotten that the reason why so many mmo's with dungeon only models are losing customers left and right is because this minority that cares for only 100% foreknowledge runs and 100% gear prior to running dungeons breaks up and destroys the community. Here it is three years later and they are STILL being pandered to by these companies all because they had an original thought and these people didn't like it, so they whined there wasn't what they were used to doing, running dungeons endlessly, and now look where it gets them. We'll see in the next few months. Or has everyone here forgotten what happened with gearscore and dps meters, or what happened with SWTOR? Remember these are the same people that NEVER stick with a game for more then 3-5 months at a time before moving onto a new shiny where they do exactly the same thing.
My current guild had people logging in constantly prior to this new patch, I haven't seen half the officers since we're all waiting with bated breath on what they'll do next.

The fact that there is one more set that you need to grind for doesn't mean that you can't finish content without it. That was the point with GW, that is the point, and that will always be the point. It won't change in a few months because ANet has it very well figured out with its no-sub mmorpg. You can get gear by being very skilled, very patient or very sociable (grouping gives better rewards).
Your second point I don't know because many people buy GW, play it for a bit then quit. They've seen the game then move on. It's just not their game but they tried it because of their clan, friends or just curiosity. This has nothing to do with ANet failing to respond to its customers.
Finally it's not like I'm a fanboi. So if you really want to complain, then complain against the things that makes the mmorpg addictive, such as the max achievements for WvW, max achievements for each weapon type, etc. etc.
