Windows forgetting folder type view settings (BagMRU size)

Why has Microsoft, after all these years, still not fixed the problem of Windows "forgetting" individual folder views? YES, I'VE CHECKED THE BOX. Requiring users to edit the registry when it would take ZERO effort for Microsoft to do it is just wrong. If you don't know what I'm talking about, Windows limits individual folder views to 5000. Once that has been reached, Windows will randomly switch to details view (or whatever your default is). You must add "BagMRU Size" to the registry and set it to a higher amount.
