It might be interesting to be able to create a tilt shift effect in Lightroom (like Instagram)

Sounds like a job better suited to a third-party, and a round-trip from Lightroom to the third-party.

With major effects like this, there is no clear obvious "correct" way; results are highly personal. Adobe would never be able to satisfy most people interested in such a look. Instagram can get away with it because they are a fast and cheap publish service more than a photography service.

Better to let those who care choose the tool they like the best.
