Exporting to excel is broken

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Working with search results

Exporting to excel has changed in that the column order is no longer preserved, epic link is the epic key not the name, the first line with JIRA logo is no longer there neither the date, multiple sprint columns have appeared instead of all the sprint names in the same column. Please put it back the way it was.

I am perplexed to understand why they would do that. It makes the csv export pretty useless as one doesn't get what one expects to get. However, exporting to html and opening in excel works. Thanks very much.
