I understand what you mean but I also understand why an infrequent traveler (or even a frequent one that isn't used to those routes) might think the airlines would take care of bag transfer if they're willing to list tickets with those kinds of connections as first choice airfares. To my mind, any connection involving a manual transfer between airports should be flagged prominently, perhaps even in its own section, as I've seen them listed when I've done fare searches on dot bomb with small, easily missed warnings about the transfer between airports.
