Should AoE 2’s UI show the attack bonusses a unit has?

Something I noticed while playing the game and browsing forums is people always mentioning that AoE 2 has a lot of hidden bonusses (e.g. villagers +3 attack vs buildings). AoE 3 and 4 ‘fixed’ that so to say by being transparent about attack bonusses a unit has when selecting it.

Do you think that the UI should be reworked to show all attack bonusses by default?

AoE3 does this and I think it’s quite weird that AoE2 still doesn’t.

Sure, with a pop-up that you can open by clicking on the unit icon, like AoM.

For the tech tree there is an incredible mod made by Harooooo: https://www.ageofempires.com/mods/details/14335/

There should be some in-game way of knowing since new players are probably not going to go to wiki and check every single unit.
