Interesting, back to the very beginning… 

I kind of already accepted that an indicator should be found, not questioning is usefulness anymore. Personally I do not care much about it, but obviously others do and in general additional information is considered a good thing, so why not add it? All I really care about in this context is, that however we implement it, no existing or easily conceivable future feature will suffer from it.
