Text on a path can only be done in AD at the moment but you can use the Mesh Warp tool on, say, Artistic Text to curve it but the text will not remain editable afterwards

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

This seems exceptionally unintuitive, with so many things it can do the fact it can't do something that is used all the time makes me just head back to photoshop.

What kind of work are you doing? Perhaps Designer would be the better choice for you. Or perhaps you need both.

It would add value in AP.  Occasionally, I would appreciate the ability to add curve text to a photo retouch, adding a special message or curve school name to logo, etc.

can I use a layer in AP as a base for the text curve in AD? so can I export a layer from AP to AD, so that I can write a curve text on it, then export that back to AP?

No need to export a layer. Just File -> Edit in Designer and after doing your work there File -> Edit in Photo.
