fwiw I took a look (but don't get excited, I'm not really into UI stuff)
and my comment is that although i personally agree and have suffered
from the same problem, your bug is basically againist UI design, so it's
harder to prove that it's a bug, compared to, for example:
"when I ask for offline mode, the device remains online"

You are questioning the specs, not their implementation.

If you have time and the knowledge, I would recommend to try to do your
fix and submit it as a patch that, without compromiising the original
functionality, improves it, for example adding an option to the power

Then it will be probably easier to have your request satisfied.

In the worst case i can assure you that you'll have at least one user
(me =) for the patch.
