I bet they got caught a bit off guard with the level of engagement (both in sales and in the forums). They are silent because they must have 1-2 people in charge of ALL forum posts.
This patch fixes things the developers can see without any feedback from Customer Support / QA / whoever is incharge of the forums. They probably didn't read the vast majority of the posts and definitely did not incorporate it in the work-plan for this patch.
I guess we'll just have to wait and see if it will be changed in future patches.
