It would be nice if the AppleScript capabilities of Quicken could be improved to include generating reports and controlling how the reports are customized (date ranges, etc.).

The same would be true for budgets.

    I think the future of AppleScript on macOS is cloudy at best… more like a dark cloud. Apple eliminated the position of AppleScript product manager and let go of the primary AppleScript evangelist back in 2016. Although it still exists, it seems likely that the future of automation on the Mac will increasingly be Shortcuts (formerly Workflow) coming from the iOS side. Some of Apple's core apps in Big Sur -- such as Maps and Messages -- have no AppleScript dictionaries. Those apps have largely been replaced by iOS code implemented on macOS with Catalyst, Apple's modern development environment which allows iOS apps to be enhanced and run on macOS. And Catalyst doesn't support AppleScript. 

    I think it would be hard for any Mac developer to invest resources in building AppleScript functionality unless Apple comes out with information that it will be extending and continuing to support AppleScript in the future.
