Sorry, I do not think this would be a good idea.
In case of initial startup you get 100% even if there is no signal
at all.
To be honest, I always hate equipment [and software] that lies to me
and hides real values from me, even [or especially] if it tries to
be more intelligent than me...

Maybe I am a bit fussy as a technician, I know...
