Red Outlines

General Discussion
I know there have been posts on this, but it seems that the beta has no option to toggle on/off the red outlines that highlight monsters which are moused over (and the white line highlight on bookshelves etc, though those are less intrusive).

I really hope there will be an option in the full version of the game. A simple white-light highlight similar to the one in diablo 2 would be preferable, at least to me, and I'm sure there are others who feel the same. The red outline really draws the attention to the monster, which is what it's meant for, but it also detracts from monster art and spell effects, and also stands out enough from the environment to look intensely artificial.

What do you guys think?
I don't find it detracts from my experience at all, but for the sake of matters like these where opinions are divided as such and it wouldn't have a negative effect on anyone, I do think it's too bad it's not an option to turn it off.
