In regards to your post, I don't have a complete answer for you. However I will definitely be passing your comments along to the appropriate team for review. This topic is gaining popularity, and I can see why. Reaching the Platinum Premier Status Level is a great accomplishment!
Appreciate the inclusion brightlybob. Unfortunately, I'm an American guy due to consumption of US Air, so no benefit for me.
Maybe as Marriott Rewards merges with SPG a rename of the status levels will finally come around. May I suggest Unobtainium? Or, for that matter, anything that removes confusion.
