FReq: LWM numeric panel default to ACTIVATE / devolve to buttons

Is there 1) any reason the Numeric Panel doesn't DEFAULT to "Activate"? Because, there's a wasted click if ever there was one.

2) Any reason not to break out the "Action" menu choices into buttons? There's only TWO (for pity's sake), and plenty of room. MENUS ARE INHERENTLY SLOW, and a two choice "menu" is.... ::grinding teeth:: .... ill advised.
