Good Connection Search feature please!

I really don’t understand why this was left out of Halo 4 being that it was in Reach, but why was the good connection search feature scrapped? Being from Australia, often I have to play very laggy matches against foreign players (no offense, it is likely because Australian connections are worse than many other nations), but with good connection, this game is seriously on par with Halo 3 for me, and would like to search for local players in matchmaking before going international.

Is it possible that this feature could be implemented with a title update since it appears that the title updates are going to be much more substantial in Halo 4 (ie. full CSR system)?
