Hmmm so it really is an error and they should have entered it in the same way that people were already using when they did a batch import...

I'm tempted not to do anything about this to be honest.

Well I've posted patches back on all the changes I've made, you could always "me too", but don't just say me too obviously :) a bug to show support for it, the more people that seem to want the same issue fixed the more likely it will be fixed. At least that's how these things work in theory ;)
