Strokes in InDesign, please make it as it should be.

Please, please, please, please Adobe, fix the stroke behaviour in InDesign.

What's the problem?
In InDesign we can choose to let the stroke align to the center, the inside, or the outside of a path. Nice.

But the strange thing is that InDesign does not take the original path for snapping and sizing.
It takes the path + stroke for these. That's very inconvenient.

In InDesign, stroked paths are snappy at the edge of the stroke, in stead of the path itself (like Illustrator does correctly).
When working with a grid (very common for professional designers), the result is that the stroked shape's handles no longer fit on a grid. That makes it very annoying and almost impossible to align the stroked shapes to the grid.

I would love to have strokes in InDesign that work the same way as Adobe Illustrator does: the stoke width should never change the size of a shape or path.
