1) This feature was announced September 3rd -
and the first patch related to this landed on 2010-09-27 -
http://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/15671 . Not knowing until it's too
late? Are you having a laugh or just not paying attention?
2) WordPress is not a commercial product for Automattic. WordPress is an
open source product that I am proud to contribute too. You may want to
check your facts.
3) If you don't like what the core team is doing, contribute to core so
that you have a say.
