Windows RSAT tools Export Bugs

Occasional Visitor

So I am using the RSAT tools, particularly the "Active Directory Users and Computers" tool. 

I am using the export as CSV feature, and there is a considerable and problematic bug in this that I suspect is true for many users. The Export as CSV, does NOT enclose field values with "(doublequote) and simply tries to utilize the ,(comma) separator as the only field delimiter. While this is normative under RFC 4180, the enhanced implementation which is also part of RFC 4180 with enclosing quotes should be offered or preferred. This would facilitate exports and data integrations where data entered by users or automata into Active Directory fields contain "(doublequote) or ,(comma) characters, and those field legal but typical delimiter characters make the export non-parseable deterministically.
