I realise your point but soccer moms, grannys and a bunch of "unqualified" people also drive Porsches where the LC is activated in a much simple manner.
Look at it in another way: Taking DSC off (which is equally dangerous for soccer moms) comes at a press of a button. Why couldn't LC also be initiated with the press of a button, or (even better) by pulling both paddles for, say, 2 secs?
Not an excuse for BMW really...
