I really don't know how to suggest that beside "BYOND needs to be able to create better platformer games and EASIER than it is at the moment."
Forum_account does have a library but you have to fuse it with so much other stuff (Keyboard library for example) and it's far from easy to understand for average programmers, I'm sure if BYOND had it own pre-made physics engine, platformers could be created more easily. + BYOND seems to be the perfect engine focuses solely on creating 2D games.
Unity has this thing where when you create a project you can pick the environment to be either 2D or 3D. I was wondering if BYOND could have something like this but for platformers. So like you could pick "overworld-2D", "platformer-2D" or "Isometric". Picking the platformer-2D would create a 2D environment with a pre-made physics engine in which users could edit and change gravity and camera movement etc.... BYOND should be capable of creating platformers far more easily than it is at the moment.
