Apologies if at any point it was implied that I thought Riot DIDN'T care about the new-player experience. If anything, I started this thread BECAUSE of Riot's apparently constant efforts to improving the overall experience of the game, for all players, as much as possible - and this, I think, could be a small piece of that if it can be accomplished at any point!

A mention is how things might get started so: sounds good to me! Much appreciated (^-^)

So we may still have Advanced bots one day complete with enemy Jungler and bots being smart enough to take jungle and dragon/baron? Also most importantly every bot has a skin all the time. :P

AI bots replacing AFK players confirmed. :O

No, I didn't take it that way at all. My reply was just meant to emphasize that in addition to our ongoing efforts to improve things for everyone (including new players), we have a team that cares especially much specifically about new players.
