What is this "rooted" that you speak of?

Actually Banshee's veil is the melee equivalent

wat ? You make some crazy ideas man o_O
Anyway, melees will never be viable unless we get a BKB-analog item
OR
unless Riot rebalances base stats and stats per lvl for ranged vs melee champions AND adds good offence+defence items like hexdrinker for melees only.

Right now there is no reason to ever pick a melee carry (besides jungle Brolaf and Wwick) - you harm your own team doing so in ranked.

I'm pretty sure the main reason is that you're getting in range to be CC'd.

Ranged champions are like "LOLOL you can't touch me"
Melee champions are "Must get in range so that I am within their spells' range!"
Its a great thing for tanks, but melee carries DO NOT want to be the target of over 9000 spells and CCs.

Tryndamere even at level 6 out damages ranged carries so significantly that I think they might be at 1/2 his damage.

And yet he does significantly less in a team fight cause everyone he tries to attack just runs away. He doesn't become threatening till he can kill you in those 3 hits he gets off.

Amen. This man speaks truth!

Unfortunately, it's still not enough when playing against equally skilled opponents.

-Melee carries can not attack ryze while they are rooted. Ranged carries can.
-Melee carries can not flash out of danger then still be attacking (they have to run back into danger.)
-Melee carries can not attack garen, ever. (They will be judged then ulted.) This means when garen initiates the melee carry has to stand back and wait, where as the ranged carry can open fire and force him back.
-Melee carries lane very poorly.
-In a team that includes 2 AoE ultimates melee carries never have to be attacked once, they will die by ult power alone.
-Melee carries spend the majority of team fights trying to get into range. Ranged carries spend the majority of team fights forcing their opponents to try to get out of range.
