Better / adjustable metering resolution

Besides all the suggested/ top voted requests about metering, I'd like to ask for another adjustable feature in order to get better metering resolution:

On the mixer. I'd like to be able to set the maximum value of meter reading to 0 dBfs.

 As I am aiming for a maximum peak level around -12dBfs, and never go over 0dBFS or come anywhere close on individual channels, I do not need to know how much I have gone over 0dBfs. This would provide a better resolution which is practical and easier to read.

With the recent metering, if someone never goes over 0dBfs, then we are losing at least 10dB of resolution on the meters.
