Major/Minor 7 & 9 labeling consistencies

Take for instance an F maj9 or F min9; should you write either (1, 2, 3, 7) without their 5th interval, C, they’re still read as F maj9/F min9 when they should distinguish themselves by outputting with (no5) appended. This not only applies to major/minor ninths, but sevenths as well. Goes without saying “(omit5)” sometimes gets written, but Scaler evidently goes with “(no5)” for major/minor triads among several other chord types already. This nuance seems to be a developmental oversight.
