Newsgator re-enabled in Help/About...

The other day I ran into issue that Newsgator was no longer running in Outlook and I couldn't figure out why. I repaired Newsgator using the installer and still no joy, I then tried a bunch of other unsuccessful attempts of manully re-adding the add-in :-(

Finally found the following article on how to fix.

Now what sort of weirdo at Microsoft decided that the logical place to discover the disabled add-ins was in the "Help/About" dialog under "Disabled Items" - what the? Surely when hunting in the Add-in manager there should have been a means to discover here - or is that just too logical? Who the hell goes to "Help/About" to discover and fix issues?
