Inconsistent Date Options

I recently came across 2 date-related options which look inconsistent within the app. 

Would be grateful if the smartsheet development team can address it soonest!

The Inconsistency: 

In the Workflow-Automation we can set a Condition as <any date field> is not today; whereas in the Conditional Formatting dialog, we don't have this particular date-field evaluation parameter (i.e., "is not today"). 

The presence of this evaluation parameter in the Conditional Formatting dialog would make it much easier to ignore everything else and just monitor today's dates in the data! 

Please see the attached screenshots.
