Store app high-DPI override

I develop a desktop app called Expresii, which uses GPU for realtime processing. It is made into an Store app via Desktop App Converter. I recently added high-DPI support, but since higher DPI also increases the processing / memory needed for rendering, some users would find the slower performance to be unbearable:

As a desktop app, we can always go back to using 'system enhanced' by system override if one prefer the state before high-DPI support. Store apps are not allowed to have the override. 

From the Windows Central article: "The new DPI scaling settings are only available for traditional desktop (GDI-based) apps. Windows Store apps cannot be configured with these options because they're already optimized for high pixel density displays." 

I'd like to ask if Microsoft can consider allowing such override, since there're also performance issue associated with high-DPI support.

Thank you for your attention!
