some care should be exercised here. If the interface is to become less 
clear and it is now necessary to go and read the manual in order to 
understand how to use such a basic and important input, I would be very 
inclined to see this as a regression not an improvement.

This current interface , despite its shortcomings is clear and explicit 
about what is available.

Replacing this approach with RTFM hardly seems appropriate.
