This is a one time thing, covered by the manual. They'll learn, ask, or
read what it means, then get used to it pretty quickly. And love it.

Also, I don't understand why user confusion is an excuse for a feature
some of us like to have/implement. Are we going to reject work based on
the user confusion *some* people expect or do we weight the work
developers put into it and the demand for it over it?

Best regards.
