Perhaps I am being too sensitive, but with all due respect I do not find
it constructive to say to that something is just plain unacceptable.
Instead, it would be better to say that you would prefer it another way
(or an option to do so) and could this be implemented in a future release?
With careful wording you can get people on your side and get what
you want; otherwise, people can get upset.
