 When I understand you correctly you want to have the option removed
that people want to actively *not* choose a specific leader but indeed
*want* a random leader?

 I'm not sure wether that really can be considered a bug, especially
since it has explicitly written "random" there, and I don't think that
upstream would consider removing having that option is a good idea. I'll
leave it open as wishlist until I've received feedback on the idea from
upstream, though.

 Thanks for your input anyway!
