Better Aggregation Handling in Dimension Tables in Power BI Desktop

This is a brief post to ask you all for your help in getting a Power BI Desktop change through.  Please give me 3 mins of your time.

Note below the default aggregation behaviour of all these columns in the Calendar table is "SUM". No one wants to SUM a Year or Month Number column.  Yes, sometimes you do want to sum a column in a dimension table but it is the exception, not the rule.

If you agree, please click the link below and vote to have the default behaviour changed.
