I know, I have considered that solution. But I'd like to have the EPiServer setup as "clean" as possible, minimizing customizations and add-ons, and having as few dependencies as possible. That way we can really be fast moving, not having to test every little feature after an EPi-upgrade.

However, you bringing it up makes it easier for us to argue for a higher priority.
We always appreciate feedback (especially like this, well argued and well defined)!
