Missing Features in Lightroom for Apple Aperture Migration

I'm currently planing to switch from Apple Aperture to Adobe Lightroom. I developed my last photo sets with Lightroom instead of Aperture to check if there are any missing features.

I found the following two features which are missing in Adobe Lightroom:

1. More Advanced White Balance
Aperture provides more advanced white balance settings. It is possible for example to set the white balance based on a skin tone in the image. This works perfect in many cases and saves a lot of time adjusting images with faces in bad light situations, or at least provides a good base to work with.

2. Stronger Blur (Photoshop blur in Lightroom)
Sometimes I like to add more blur to the background of a photo. In Lightroom even if I put the "Sharpening" slider to -100, the blur effect is very weak, and the "Clearness" slider makes some tone changes as well. Here I really would like the power of the blur tools from Photoshop in Lightroom.

3. Integration of Photostream on Mac OS X
I like to comfort to automatically import all photos made with my iPhone into my photo library. It is also nice to share photos on this platform.

There is a work around for #3 that uses the Automator. I've been using it since Lightroom 4.
