Risk of unlimited loss with stop-order when connection fails

Go to the next issue (open or closed)
Go to the next open issue

I would like to attach a stoploss to my stop-order at the broker (LMAX), so I am safe in case Multicharts crashes or its connection gets lost.
The LMAX API supports stoploss for stop-orders:
public StopOrderSpecification(string instructionId, long instrumentId, decimal stopPrice, decimal quantity, TimeInForce timeInForce, decimal? stopLossPriceOffset, decimal? stopProfitPriceOffset);
So it would be great if the MC.Net API could expose this parameter as well.
This is currently blocking for my signal to go live with MC.

Steps to reproduce this issue

1) My signal places a buy-stop-order, including GenerateStopLossPt(10).
2) I unplugged the network so MC loses internet connection.
3) The price hits the stop-order at the broker so the order is filled.
4) Result: there is no stoploss, since the internet connection from MC to broker is lost.
