Feature req for 8.1: Keep option to disable wifi when locked

I hope this can reach your developers. Thus far I am really pleased with my Nokia 8 and certainly since the last update it is working great.
My girlfriend uses a Nexus 5x and a while ago she got Android 8.1. From that point she was getting less and less out of her battery. After a while I figured out they removed the option to disable wifi when your phone is locked. A terrible decision in my opinion. Not only is it an easy and good way to save battery, it also is good against wifi tracking in shops and what not.
To be sure this is the option I mean: http://www.androidpolice.com/2017/10/25/android-8-1-feature-spotlight-keep-wi-fi-sleep-option-removed-pixel-2/
Please respond if you also want to keep this option!
