Thanks for reporting this. I will move this to verified reports, as you have made it in the correct format. However I am not sure if the developers will see this as a bug. While I see you point that this is confusing, I think I am right in saying that the convention used is the standard convention, s to change it might arguably create more confusion.

So for the moment, and pending that feedback I will not log it in the bug tracking system.

Best wishes and many thanks
