I can only hope that this site is not complete yet.
As with previous seasons, I suspect they will update it later in the fall with more information and more models. Nordica, as a company, is not what I would consider one of the "wealthy" ski brands either... not even in the top 8 I don't think (someone mentioned it in a recent thread here). My guess is that the level of quality reflects the timeliness in which the 06/07 site was put up for the season... are they first? If they are that simple move will do a lot in terms of popularity for the brand. As far as technical features... what are you looking for? Anything that a ski company lists as a technical feature is usully mostly marketing BS anyway...
Regarding the type of skier that should be in each boot - I actually like the approach of not completely defining what kind of skier should be in each boot. It does not put an preconceived notions in the buyers head that "they should be skiing in boot X beacuse that is the type of skier they are." It will allow boot fitters to do their job without the skier coming and saying "I want a Dobermann Pro 130 because I am an expert skier." Rather the skier will not really know what the ski/boot company says they should be skiing in and will make their decision based on the fit they get in the shop - which is the better route to go anyway. In my opinion the most helpful information that Nordica provides on their boot site is the last width. Only a few companies are providing that information in detail, and it really helps when you are trying to determine the volume of the boot. [100mm for the Speed Machine 14, which is a medium volume fit; etc.]
