BT Whole Home Premium White Discs - Bad Practise where Spanning Tree Priority is hard coded to 0

Hi on BT Whole Home Premium White Disc running version SGAB208326:

Is it possible for BT to change the default Spanning Tree (STP) Priority which has been hard coded to 0? In my opinion this is bad practise, as it stops the ability for one to choose their own STP Root Bridge on a LAN.

This means it is not possible to manually configure another specific STP Root Bridge on a LAN, where the BIA (Burned in MAC address) of the BT Whole Home Premium White Disc  is lower than that of all other devices on the LAN.

BT could either hard code this to be some value higher than 0 or provide access to configure the value, to enable one to choose their own specific Root Bridge on a LAN.

Take a guess at the number of customers that require it.

It doesn't matter and is not the point. It should not be hard coded with a priority of 0 to start with. If every manufacturer did this, it would be chaos. Probably why I haven't seen this before from any other manufacturer.
