Fog of War Draw proposal reveals number of nations

Hello,

I have searched but never found any thread talking about this. I played in a FoW game (Americas). During the course one of the nations offered a draw, which revealed that there were only 5 nations left (they were the only ones listed with "no response"). I understand it's probably public voting that did it, but still...

This is an important bug for FoW games that I have raised several times. In FOW it is particularly important that the only information available about other powers and their units and territories is limited to that which is revealed by the positions of one's own units and owned territories (territories that are your color or adjacent to or occupied by units of your color.

It is a violation of this principle that the elimination of players is revealed through the draw proposal status. It would not matter if eliminated powers are included in the draw status as they cannot vote anyway.
