UI enhancement: InDesign Corner Options

Choosing the Corner Options menu item in InDesign (which has no keyboard shortcut...) brings up this dialog:

I think the design of this dialog is rather confusing. The four corners are all represented by an upper-left corner. This mistake is compensated by a micro size icon. In my opinion, it would be better and more intuitive to do it this way:

And please let the corner options default to round corners! When we want straight corners, we would not choose corner options... And when straight corners are selected, the size-box should be inactive...

Wow, that's a lot of improvement to make!
