I can't say I disagree with you, indeed...I just say that this seems
to be it is a design choice.
BUT, I may be wrong. Let's see comments about this BR. There has
already been strange things in the past with "Back" buttons.

No, if what I described is correct, you started at "high" then were
lowered to "meidum" , then "low"

No, really "low".
