Be able to delete one step in the history in LR

After I have spent a great deal of time edditing a picture, sometimes I see that one of the effects that I applied so many steps ago is not what I really want. I have to go back one step before the one I don't want to use and start applying everything again. I would like to be able to choose that adjustment from the history and delete it.

That's have been discussed a thousand times before.

The order of adjustments in LR/ACR is not important. Therefore deleting a history step does not make any sense. Or, in other words, it would the same as going to the relevant slider/tool and modifying its value.

For example, if you have a step that says "Exposure -2" and you think that actually you shouldn't have done it and want to delete this step — just set you exposure slider back to 0.

With the exception of a single errant brush stroke or two, I don't see how this would be of tremendous use.
