I agree, but it is the same for purchase request, shiping actions and
production orders, isn't it ?

The one who would find how to fix it without rewriting Odoo would help
many indeed

I don't think this is easy, but it's only my guess. Check what was
done in the "well known fork", it was fixed the hard way by a
diverging framework.
May be a trade off would be to add a mention on documents generated by
the workflow to warn the user, but little chance to get it in core,
Odoo is reluctant to "warn users" because it can also worry them.
