Ralph, the placement of controls on automobile dashboards is often a mystery. Between my brother, our friends and myself we had a number of 1960s sports cars. They were fun! They were also strange in their design in some ways. My brother had a 1968 Tirumph GT-6 (come to think of it, he still has that car). Just about everything was controlled by a long row of switches on the beautiful wood dash. These we a type of rocker switch. The problem with these was that they all were the same and over time the white painted symbology would wear off. You just had to know.
Now, your Expedition is quiate a lot newer. Yet, you report many of the same types of pacement problems I have seen over years. I guess the design of the dash is done last and that aesthetics trumps usability in many cases.
