"Edit Hole Note" feature problems

This may be flawed in my opinion or I'm not doing something correct. Let's say I have a part file that has a drilled thru hole with a counter bore and is a Metric part. Now in the drawing module I'm using english units with metric as alternate. The problem is that the "edit hole note" feature won't allow for alternate units worse yet it will only use the units that are in the part file. So I'm right back to where I was in release 5.3 (forcing dimensions into the drawing module). Need referential integrity please!

The hole feature should use the units in which the
hole was defined regardless of the template units.

 

If you are making a manual dim of a hole, make a
new dimension style and define the units to be mm.  Use this style when
adding these hole dims...

I can understand having thread holes not allowed to change but a counter bore or drilled hole should have flexibility.

I have found them very flexible compared to 5.3.
