App-awareness is more than APIs
Part of the reason that app-awareness isn't everywhere is that the "Here is an API" approach basically builds a gate and asks the person on the other side to figure out how to get through it. The real work needs to be a common set of abstractions that work in vendor-agnostic environments. It is not surprising there hasn't been more progress here because the work to-date has been either too low-level (OpenFlow is good, and it doesn't address this type of problem) or too vendor-specific. 

I suspect that the new wave of commercial controllers will start to solve these problems. The endgame might still be a ways out, but at least there is movement now in these areas.
