It's a start, though the way I hear, it's not the only absurd UI limitation F2Pers and Preferreds are subject to that they feel dissatisfied about. Removing all UI limitations seems to be what people expect, with the F2P limitations being gameplay only, like the caps on weekly warzones and flashpoints and such. Gameplay limitations are what people expect and are okay with dealing with as f2pers. Limitations with the user interface of the game is just where it gets frustrating.
Or so I hear from various threads both here and in other places like mmo-champion forums.
