I wish that Simplify, Reduce and LogicalExpand produced canonical
forms that were both completely documented and completely reliable.

Programs written in Mathematica need to be able to pattern match
against expressions returned by these functions. Pattern matching code
is only reliable if it is matching against a reliable canonical form.
If Mathematica made more of an effort to produce well-documented
canonical forms, it would help us.
