For the Prayers at the foot of the Altar that's fine (though I would love it if the whole congregation responded and prayed the confiteor aloud), but that just can't work for the rest of Mass if it's High.

Fr. Jungmann's The Mass of the Roman Rite says that the prayers at the Foot of the Altar are not the people's prayers, but prayers of the clergy, said by the altar servers in place of the minor clergy who used to be present.  The people's part of the Mass begins with the Introit, which is a entrance hymn.  This is much more apparent in a sung Mass.
That WAS the case before St. Pius V codified the Mass as it is now. I believe it is (or at least was before the NO) a venial sin to miss the prayers at the foot of the altar on a day of obligation now, right? Before St. Pius those prayers were probably said in the sacristy or something. I see how's it's more apparent in Sung Masses when the Introit is usually sung over the prayers at the foot of altar.
