Round 4 Statblock Question

I have a question to the good people from Paizo regarding the statblock template, not only regarding this competition but also as currently used in Paizo modules:

You removed the "Atk Options" line from the Offense section and at the same time do not allow feats to be listed in the Special Attacks line. I found it quit useful to see the options available on an attack - like for example Power Attack, Combat Expertise or Improved Trip - right there in the Offense section without having to refer to the Feats line further down below. Why was this changed?

Also I have an improvement proposal. As my campaign often features trip attacks, I have taken to expanding the Base Atk line to include offensive and defensive trip bonuses, like this:

Base Atk +4; Grp +6; Trip +6/+2

or, if a creature cannot be tripped:

Base Atk +4; Grp +6; Trip +6/—
