R5 4 dials!

I have been thinking about the return of the rear thumbwheel on the R5, but that they also retained the top rear dial from the R. With an RF lens or ring adapter you now have 4 dials on the camera. Has anybody thought about how all 4 can actually be utilized?

-with Manual mode, you only need 3 dials. Maybe the 4th one could be flash exposure compensation.

-with Fv mode, you only need 2 dials. Here is where they could really utilize all 4.

-with Av or Tv modes, you just need 3 dials, one of them being exposure compensation.

I would love to see them transition the Fv mode to be more like the Fuji. Each dial could be assigned a setting, but you could always set any or all of them to auto, and you also would need a dedicated exposure compensation dial. That way you would never have the dials change assignment as they do when you switch between Tv, Av and Manual.

Maybe there is another setting that would be an obvious use for a dial?
