I love the idea that they give choice that you can creep or have no forward movement. The one thing I wish they would add to the no-creep mode is what I my Lexus LS460 has which automatically engaged the brakes when you came to a complete stop. They called a hold button which you could had the choice to engage. When I first was shown this option when I bought the car I thought it was a joke, but as I started to use it, it became one of my favorite things about the car. Right now in the Tesla you roll on even a slight incline in when the creep mode is not engaged. It would make the no creep function so much better and appealingly.
What was totally great about the Lexus is that you simply had to hit the accelerator and the brake was disengage. Also when the brake was engaged the brake lights were on.
I would think that this is an easy software upgrade for the Tesla and it would add a great benefit at long stop lights to rest your foot. I know it sounds crazy but honestly you really miss it when you do not have it.
