app submission tool does not preserve Minimum Requirements checkboxes across versions

STR:

1. upload a packaged app version, set the "OpenMobile ACL" flag in the minimum requirements section.
2. upload a second version of the same app

Expected:

* 2nd version of the app will retain the "OpenMobile ACL" flag in the minimum requirements section.

Actual:

* 2nd version of the app does not retain the "OpenMobile ACL" flag in the minimum requirements section. Very error prone. Requires developer to remember to check again every time.
Yeah, technically features are meant to be detected automatically and therefore it makes sense to separate them per version and not copy them over, but I agree this leads to errors.

Maybe instead of having OpenMobile ACL as a hidden feature flag we should leave it accessible for everyone (if you tick the checkbox, only thing that does is hide the app from non-compatible devices) and detect it in the validator, pre-ticking the checkbox at upload time in devhub like we do for many other features.
Is there something we can put in the manifest file so it auto checks the box?
Your manifest already contains permissions we can detect, we just need to do the detection.
