As an optional, yes. I also concur. However, the point that you just
don't seem to be accepting is that a hint serves exactly that purpose.
I am baffled why someone who "doesn't care" would be keeping a tally,
though, instead of just writing a hint (which would have taken less time
and energy than writing more than 30 messages in this thread).

People do oppose the addition, and some people agree conditionally to
the addition. No one is debating the hint route. It gets the information
to the readers and solves the original concern just as fully as an
addition to the LFS packages would.
