Default LimeWire hurting GNet?

It has come to my attention that although LimeWire is taking advantage of READING the search results that BearShare sends out to determine if the server is busy, they are not SETTING these flags in the extended area.

This prevents people from detecting if a LimeWire servent is busy or not, and therefore puts more load on BearShare users.

It was apparently an intentional oversight, designed to improve the reliability and quality of downloads using LimeWire, at the expense of the BearShare servent.
