True, and I have nothing against this in principle. The point is: why not clearly state this with all the other specs? I don't have to discover this by the invoice.
And, honestly, one thing is a "made in China" hi-fi or t-shirt, something else is a "made in China" brake...

Correct, it is worth repeating this once again. For the application that I had in mind, they would have fitted even with this (big) limitation
