Seriously missing functionalities for LR mobile

I was getting tired of lugging my laptop around to manage my photos during shoots, so i bought an iPad with the intention of replacing my windows computer. The key app for me is Lightroom. What encouraged me is the fact, that with iPad Pro and the newest OS I can mount my SD cards and directly import the images w/o crazy Bluetooth/WLAN connection nightmares and half cooked apps. In the meantime I seriously regret my decision and again, the key reason is LR mobile. Here an incomplete list of what I cannot do compared to LR Classic on my windows machine:
- stack RAWs and JPEG when browsing, marking and labeling my photos
- Selecting groups of images for color labeling and assigning #1-5 qualifiers for selecting keepers and discards
- renaming photos according to my trusted and long standing procedure (yyyy-mm-dd_event-place-site#xxxx)
- assigning key words
- exporting catalogues (in fact LR mobile does not seem to have a catalogue concept at all but rather collections only. I find it a nightmare to bring back images from a collection into my main catalogue (which currently has ~120,000 images).
- the whole affair seems to be geared towards working in the Adobe cloud. Forget that I have tons of space on OneDrive, Amazon, iCloud, noooo, I am supposed to shell out a subscription to yet another cloud. I don't know, where the good people at Adobe go for vacation, but where I go (Albania, Montenegro, Greece etc. with beautiful photo ops) there is frequently absolutely no internet so the whole Cloud obsession becomes fairly cloudy ....

- doing a quick panorama or HDR from stacks of raws
- etc...
Honest question to the crowd here: am I missing something here or can it really be, that I have to sell my iPad in order to get another boring Windows PC because there everything works as it has for 15 years dealing with digitaly photography?

iOS devices cannot run Lightroom Classic.

 

One of the small Macbooks or something like a Surface Pro would be your best bet.
