Here's a small issue: when tapping the brake to disable cruise control on a regular car, the car starts coasting. When tapping the brake on a Tesla with regen on, the car starts braking. And we all know regen can be pretty aggressive braking.
This results in some jerky driving, but more importantly, when you're in close traffic you don't want such a quick change in speed, including your brake lights coming on, even if it's just for a second.
Imagine driving in close traffic at 70 mph and all of a sudden the driver in front of you pumps the brakes. Can be dangerous.
It's resulted in me having to tap the brake and very quickly moving to the accelerator, which makes for a very jerky experience.
