All the above matches my experience well (going back to the pre-Qualcomm
days).  I'm only quibbling about "demanding" rather than "requesting" or
"urging."  Hiding the headers would be very easy for them...add them to the
"Boring headers" list.  (Speaking of Mac.)  Implementing buttons tied to
them would be the harder thing.

Actually, for the Mac version, *we* can tie buttons to the headers using
AppleScript, the Scripts menu, and the ability to assign buttons to scripts
in that menu.
