That might be reasonable (although a bit too verbose for my taste), but
it's more of a change than I was looking for.

Not impossible, and it shouldn't be difficult either.  One can do it
with 'real' HTML form pages, so why not with the Form-based Options

change I want to propose now - but maybe you should keep the idea
