"Standard" acceleration mode for P models

Does anyone else wish that Performance models had Chill, Sport, and Standard? (Same goes for LRs with Acceleration Boost)

I feel like the thrill of Sport wears off after a while - I'd actually rather keep the car in Standard most of the time, then flip it into Sport when I'm having a bad day and need a smile. Chill doesn't really meet the need, because it's too laid back.

Edit: Also some potential tire wear benefits.

Having purchased the Performance Boost Upgrade I do wish I could select STANDARD to return to the factory (4.8 0 to 60 times) to complement CHILL and SPORT just because I think it makes sense and should be easily doable with an OTA update.

But I'm sure this isn't high on Tesla's TO DO LIST.
