PO automatically merged in V8

I’m a bit concerned about the new possibility to merge PO automatically in V8.

Let’s imagine I work in make to order with all my products. So when I sell a product to one of my customer, I automatically send a PO to my supplier.

  1. I sell product A (supplier = supplier A) to my customer A. I automatically obtain a PO which references my SO as source document. I know that this PO concerns my customer A's order.
  2. I sell the same product A and a product B (supplier = supplier A also) to my customer B. In V8, Odoo will add product A and product B to the existing PO. The source document stays my first SO and I don’t have any trace of my second SO (logical?).

My supplier delivers me products depending on the PO. Normally I will so receive a pack with product A for customer A and a pack with product A and product B together for my customer B. (No more possible with this automatic merge) 

In this case, even if the same supplier is used, I don’t want to group PO because I need to know which customer is concerned by this .

Is there a possibility to avoid it? Did I miss something?

Thanks a lot for your answer !
