Default bluetooth volume low by design?

I found this on the blackberry knowledge database. I thought it was interesting:

What Is - Volume low when using Bluetooth headsets
Last Updated: 05 August 2005
Article Number: KB-04265


This article applies to the following:

BlackBerry Wireless Handheldsxxx8482;
BlackBerry Handheld Software version 4.0 or later

When making a phone call with a handheld running software version 4.0 or later, the volume on the Bluetooth headset is lower than the volume with software version 3.8. The volume level in version 3.8 was set higher than intended. The volume level in version 4.0 or later is by design.

So they intentialy set the volume lower on more recent software versions? Is this why I cannot hear very well on the headsets I've tried? I hear some people hear great wih the HS850 on other cell phones, but the volume is lower on the BB. Is this RIM's fault? By Design??
