+1, I don't think any of these should land in 3.x. Especially since a lot  
of them should hopefully be moot in the next major release anyway — but in  
the meantime, let's not change UI behaviour in a minor release. It's bad  
form, and while I'm usually tending towards this, I have changed my  
approach after seeing the confusion it can cause.

This is the way to go if you want your pet UI peeve addressed in the 3.x  

Thanks for raising this, Martin.
