In either case, it is hardly inconvenient.
To you. Or to me. Both of us look at the SoC gauge every time we park at home.
However, the country is stuffed with people who only add fuel to their cars when the car beeps and flashes an "ADD GAS" alert. These people have no clue about the status of their fuel tank (or battery SoC, as the case may be) at any other time and they want to keep it that way. Moreover, realize that a sizable fraction of EV drivers are like this, AND are driving an EV in no small part either to save money or because of a pushy spouse. Accommodating EV idiosyncrasies is not part of their daily agenda.
As jmurtagh so cheerfully noted, he was lucky to convince his wife to plug in daily. The rest was on him and the car. In case you are wondering, no particular perceptiveness on my part. But my wife does have a similar outlook and fuse.
