Please note that as a P4 issue this can not be fixed given we have hit RDP1:
Further this is filed as "bug" but seems to clearly be an enhancement,
so you would need approval for it to come in post-Feature-Complete.
Please consider if this is something that must be fixed for 9 or can be
deferred. Otherwise you will need to follow additional approval processes.
