Fill light in LR3

Why can't it work more like Highlight/Shadows in PS/PSE? The way Fill light works currently in LR is unusable for most of my images. The reason? It tends to shift the whole histogram to the right, and can destroy highlights or just degrade any of the bright tones. I don't want to have to use the Recovery slider to fix this as there is a further degradation to the image and my highlights were probably fine before anyway. Does anyone else have this problem? I notice PS has configurable Highlight/Shadow and yet PSE does not allow this but the default works perfectly for me. I just wonder why LR does not use a similar algorithm, or if it is similar, then why is the default set up the way it is?
