2008 XD Thumb Safety

Springfield Armory is showing an added "Thumb Safety" on their 2008 XD models. I personally think this is a bad idea. Don't get me wrong, one of the reasons I bought the XD-45 was for its "safety" but a thumb safety seems a little bit over the top. What happens in a stressful situation when you pull out the XD only to remember after pulling the trigger that the "thumb safety" was on...oops! :shock:

What are your thoughts on this? :?:

It was my understanding this was only an option. I think adding it as an option makes sense some people may want it. However I hope they don't stop making them without it because I think most people won't want it.
I hope your right. I can see this being a good feature on the range if you don't plan on carrying, but carrying - I think it is a bad idea. Can anyone verify?
Looking at springfield's site it appears that it is a model option. :D whew...
