What happened to camera raw "recovery" tool in CS6?

If I open a graphic through Bridge in CS5 and choose to open it in Camera Raw, I get Camera Raw v6.7 which includes the recovery tool - which I use a lot.

If I open a graphic through Bridge in CS6 and choose to open it in Camera Raw, I get Camera Raw v7.2 which has no recovery tool.

1. What happened to this great tool?
2. Is there a way to still use it but not give up the other new features of CS6 and Camera Raw 7.2?

The toning sliders of which Recovery was one, were redone in ACR 7.x and packaged as the default Process Version 2012. One purpose was to minimize the reverse-gradient halos.

In PV2012, Highlights and Whites will help recover blown highlights of a camera raw photo, but your usage of the term "graphic" makes it unclear if you are working with photos or some other type of image.

You can still get to the old toning sliders using Process Version 2010 available on the Camera Calibration tab.
