Accurate leading edge devices effects on lift

It would be great if the leading edge devices like slats and Krueger flaps had the correct effects on the lift curve.

At the moment, they shift the Cl(alpha) curve up, like trailing edge flaps would, when they should increase the value of the critical AOA, allowing to fly at lower speeds by allowing flying at AOA higher than the critical AOA of the clean wing.

This really isn't an SDK issue; it's a sim flight modeling issue. And Asobo should be well aware of it since it has been brought to their attention many times in many different ways (official MS Forum, Zendesk, developer forums and contacts, etc.). But I guess bringing it up in another forum can't hurt!

That's exactly what I thought, hence this idea.
