There's also a lot of gray area here. This isn't an all or nothing problem. The hidden button thing bugs me, but would be easy to fix. Having to fly over for status is not useful to those of us who try not to use a mouse. However, that doesn't mean the current insert configuration can't be adjusted/fixed to accommodate control surface/keyboard users.
