Last User Mode is analogous to memory buttons for seat adjustments and radio stations; it just makes sense.

Because the EPA could toss their ratings and make them resubmit for testing/readjust their fleet rating if they instantly undo the tech they used to get the ratings in the first place. At least they gave us a button to disable it. Frankly, I'm surprised they were even allowed to get that one by. It's sort of akin to installing an exhaust cutout that bypasses the cat converter.
