Suggestions for Responsive DirectoryPress theme

In the old non-responsive DirectoryPress theme, the "Categories" Sidebar widget showed all major categories, and clicking one would show you all the subcategories for that category. Now in the responsive theme, it seems that it only shows the individual major and sub categories that have listings in them. We (at Marmoset Digital Media) just started a directory website with 38 major categories and at least 2 sub categories for each, so obviously we would prefer the old categories widget that didn't need any listings to display all of the categories. Is there a chance you would bring a version of the old categories widget to the new responsive theme? The next suggestion I have is regarding the listing submission system. At the moment, it tells you to specify the location of your business by zooming to your location on a google map and placing a marker at where you are on the map. We find this very unwieldy and inconvenient, and we think a lot of the people making listings on our website would think so too, so we'd much rather have a simple text box to type in a full street address. At the very least, it might be a better idea to give the option to either use the google map or just type in an address?
