Elevation - Display Cumulative Gain/Loss vs. Elevation Diff

Elevation difference is not a particularly useful metric. However, Elevation Gain is a far more valuable piece of information. Please see screenshot below. I have circled "Elev" in the splits display and on the route profile. In both cases, the user is given Elev DIfference. I would suspect that many users assume this is showing Elevation Gain/Loss; it is not. During a split with multiple climbs/descents, the Elev (difference) is worthless information.

This feedback also applies to the way segments display Elev Difference only whereas it should also include Elevation Gain/Loss.

Mountain runners care about Elevation Gain/Loss, not Elevation Difference.

Request: Please allow an option to display cumulative or split Elevation Gain/Loss for a route or segment.
