I think it's a horrible feature since I like to be able to control the weight shift of the vehicle, especially while cornering and/or in low traction conditions.

Why they think that a sudden weight shift is a good thing is beyond me.

Has anyone looked into disabling this "feature"?
This is actually a great feature that I use everyday. There is no sudden weight shift. It simply downshifts if you are going downhill and hit the brake at the same time. It only kicks in for me when going around 50-60 down hill and I start riding the brake to control my speed. With it, I go 50mph down the hill, without it over 85mph.

I doubt you'd be going that fast downhill in low traction conditions on purpose, but if you did, this would save your behind.

Uh, with all due respect, you don't know what you're talking about.

Sudden and unexpected weight transfers to the front of the vehicle are not a good thing .

In low traction conditions when you're braking near the limits of adhesion this "feature" kicking in can cause the back end to get light and try to come around. Been there, done that.

And yes, in my experience there is a sudden weight shift which is a bda thing, especially when cornering in low traction conditions (snow/rain/ice).

I'm used to managing traction via the brake pedal and my throttle inputs. Sudden downshifts are really annoying and in some cases downright dangerous.

This poorly executed electronic nanny is nowhere near close to "saving my behind." Quite the contrary actually.

Cheers.
You drive over 50-60mph through corners on ice downhill? I think you may be more interested in the Airbag feature.
Hey no peeing contest here. I like it, you don't. That's all good. :)
