I agree that it’s archaic for people to act like full size keyboard (or even supplementing the tenkeyless keyboards with wireless number pad) is the best or only solution.
It’s now 2020 and a lot of people want (or need) true mobility (not the same as a laptop with awkward peripherals). Of course, Logic Pro X works great this way out of the box. And PT quite well too. I don’t have S1 experience but I bet it does as well (work great on tenkeyless keyboards, that is. Someone correct me if I’m wrong).
Myself, I’ve simply had to accept Steinberg will be well behind the curve on this trend and logic, and so I just went about remapping everything myself. In order to get used to consistency and future-proof myself a bit, I’ve converted the studio to no longer use the Num Pad either.
Compact is the current and certainly the future. There are many people in audio who are an exception to this, but they are an exception, and definitely dying off.
