The whole of the stats needs a revamp for many reasons. It's done the way it
is because that's always the ways it has been done. ie more by default than
design. It needs someone with a bit of coding time to produce a more
reliable set of data, especially figures that do not include deleted
(visible=0) data. It would also be cool to have individual data information
on individual users pages.
