How subi did it in our years wasn't helpful to bulb life. Other cars I've driven had a low/high beam DRL's. Using the night lights instead was a bad design.
First part, I don't doubt it. But what you've stated in your second part is one of two major design flaws of the 4th gen, IMHO. The second being the HU/HVAC combo.

Additionally, if a car is equipped with DRLs, IMHO it should also have automatic photosensitive headlights.
