Electric Front Windshield Defrost/Defog

I would like electric heating elements mounted on the front windshield, similar in construction to the wires that heat the back window. These front wires would:
1) Apply extra heat directly under the wipers
2) Generally warm the windshield(whenver the mirror defrost is on) to reduce fogging
3) Help the system melt ice/frost when on climate control timer.

I agree, in order to keep the car mist-free in some conditions one has to select the de-mist button and then go back to auto and then back to de-mist again, and so on. It would be nice to be able to stay on "auto" yet have an extra capability to keep the windscreen clear - which your in-screen electric filaments would do nicely. It's a common feature and I'd expected it on a car of this ilk.
