Feedback:

The static routes page where it says you can use an alias as a static route source should have a big red warning that it is not recommended in almost all cases and that every time you change the alias you have to manually delete any routes removed from the alias and then go back and hit save on the static route to pick up any new routes added to the alias.

Better yet would probably be to remove the ability to use an alias there at all unless the code is written to do the right thing in all cases.
