Okay, so there's some regression/functionality change going on here.

Okay, it sounds like
1) Functionality changed but wasn't clearly documented (?)
2) You did find a workaround, but it took a bit of digging

Hmmm, so this part sounds like an enhancement request. As the other part sounds
like you've mostly resolved it, I'm going to hand this bug over to ux-advise
and see if they have thoughts re: adding this capability.

Component -> ux-advise
Status -> NEW
severity -> enhancement
