The development team has reported that they DO read these requests.
The longer answer is, get Version 2011.
I just created a book, on short notice, and included a Descendant Report, but did NOT include the additional facts. I actually had several such reports. But the reports were to show the heritage through these reports of the focus person in the book.
Since there were several characters in these reports, I focused on them using the NEW Smart Story Feature. That allowed me to generate the FACTs, then add my own text, delete some facts, move some around that made sense. Or, as the feature suggests, created a short story on the person involved using the FACTs already in that persons record.
