    Dunno what's so controversial. I've always wondered, on the contrary, why 
    Dired X features are not loaded and made available by default.

Because then people would expect them to be in the Emacs Manual.

The original reason I set up dired-x.el was that there was a person
who wanted to write a lot of Dired extensions.  I did not think they
should all be standardly loaded, so I told him he could put any
features he liked into dired-x.el.

In any case, I see no reason not to move the F command to ordinary

By the way, the reason for the separation between dired.el and
dired-aux.el was to keep Emacs small, back in 1985 or so.
That reason is obsolete nowadays.
