I like the sound design features inside Bitwig.

It would be great if we could sync Reaper with Bitwig.

Why should any DAW manufacturer implement a feature that is named for a competitor ?

First some kind of independent standardizing organization should be formed, fix the features and rename the thingy in some neutral way.

(e.g. happily ARA is not called "Melodyne link" and VST is not called "Steinberg Link".)

The technology is just called "Link", and it's an open standard.

And Ableton is a company not a DAW. The DAW they make is called "Live", so it would be like calling "ARA", "Celemony ARA" (which people do say)

Also, REAPER isn't really a competing product to Ableton Live. They are basically at completely different ends of the DAW spectrum.

Here is a big list of software that supports link:

"Link" is a name for thousands of different things and does not clearly denote "a technology" (which acronyms like "MIDI", "VST" or "ARA" do rather nicely).
Never heard anybody say "Celemony ARA", as in most cases it it rather obvious that it's not a parrot what is meant.
Of course you are right that Reaper and Ableton are not really competitors if somebody has a dedicated usage case in mind. But supposedly both are registered trade names.
