I would say definetely not,
these known issues are pretty much a case of . here's what's wrong, and here's a rough guide on how to fix it. I can't see Microsoft upgrading this wizard in any way, considering SQL 2000 is becoming so obsolete.

one of the tasks which you will face lots of problems in migrate from legacy DTS to new SSIS is ActiveX task.
there was limited tasks in old DTS and developers should write scripts in ActiveX to implement things, but in SSIS there are lots of powerful tasks which help developers much and they can avoid scripting many times, also there is an Script task which let you to develop anything you need with .NET languages ( C# or VB.NET )
I strongly recommend to re-write your old DTS packages in SSIS, because lots of tasks in SSIS with better performance will help you more to develop your packages better. you should dedicate sometimes to lears ssis at first, but when you get familiar, you will be very satisfied with what SSIS proposed to you as a ETL tool.
