I am not aware of what the downside is to this, but as a module-creator 
I want more control over how things display, and as a user I want to be 
able to cite a source as precisely as possible. Providing the option to 
display the footnote label as indicated serves both interests.

What I am not clear about is what the downside to this philosophy is.
