Keep Checkboxes and Checklists separate CLOSED



I have use cases for both the checkbox (green X, on the Insert menu) and checklist (gray check mark plus strikethrough, on the icon bar).  

However if I add a checkbox to a line, and then hit return, the checkbox is turned into a checklist and a new checklist item is created.
Can these be kept distinct, so that hitting return at the end of a checkbox line gives a new checkbox rather than converting to a check list?

ETA: there is now an option to disable "strikethrough" on complete checklist items, which is sufficient for my needs!
