Mounting options for the Second Shooter Pan/Tilt Head

The second shooter pan/tilt head appears to be exclusively designed for a Kwik release long plate. Would it not be better to to align it up with something like the kwik release slider plate for utility plate. Since the long plate screws can slide around it seems to me to make perfect sense to make if fit with the slider plate. At the moment only 1 hole aligns with the slider plate so you can't connect it as securely as you may wish to.

The Second Shooter Pan/Tilt Head was designed to be mounted using a Kwik Short Plate 3/8"-16, both camera screws in the plate attach to the base as shown in this article.

You could use a single screw with a Kwik Utility or slider plate, but it would not be as secure as the plate would be able to rotate with a single point of connection.

I appreciate that it was designed for a specific plate but I am suggesting that with a slight design modification you can have it fit a lot more plates by simple drilling the holes in different locations.
