I don't think I have actually used arrowheads in Artworks but
the non-coincident effect in Draw has always been an irritation.
 What I can't understand, now you have eliminated the 'problem',
is why anyone would want to retain the original behaviour.  If
not, why the need for a button?

As far as the name is concerned 'Coincident' is accurate if one
knows the background of the topic from earlier releases, but it
would be pretty mysterious, I think, for a newcomer. Exactly
what objects are coincident, they will wonder.
