I'm not saying we should never do it - I'm saying we shouldn't do it in
cases where nothing significant is gained. In this case, the added
feature is VERY minor, and not even particularly beneficial. Requiring
the manual to understand what's happening in the case of a feature that
makes the UI inconsistent and doesn't actually solve any existing
problem anyway seems a bad idea.
