When using 'O' to set my outpoint in the timeline, make it an option to NOT add an extra frame after my playhead.
When I use the 'I' key to set my in-point, it doesn't add a frame after or before the playhead so logically speaking, using the 'O' key shouldn't do that either. Where I mark my out-point on my playhead should be my out-point, NOT the frame after it. I understand this was built for a reason, a reason that I don't understand and isn't logical to me as well as many others whom I've seen complain about it online.

I'm afraid the "Move Left One Frame - THEN - Mark Out" move has been around since the dawn of NLE time. Media Composer, FCP, and Premiere all have this issue.
I do agree with you. MC does have a modifier key you can press while pressing Mark Out or similar. I did like the feature and used it frequently when editing with it.
I'm in support, but I wanted to let you I upvoted your idea. I think pressing a modifier key for Mark Out would be a good approach.

Yes! I think this is a bad design and not intuitive. I press down to jump to the end of a clip so I can hit O to mark out, and it includes the first frame of the next clip.
I don't get how that's useful, however common it may be.
How many people are having to go back 1 frame because of this?
I want to export a video ending on fade to white. I go to end of sequence and hit out, but now there's 1 frame of black (nothingness) after my last frame of white. I just don't get where that's useful.
