I was just thinking about this. I know other vehicles can get around this with a simple jumper on the relay that controls this... but I don't know enough about the WK2 yet to tell you which relay or posts to jump. Anyone?
ETA: I checked out the mapping on WK2jeeps and didn't see anything labelled so it could be one of the acc relays.

I think the idea is still that you wouldn't use high beams in poor weather conditions. On the other hand, in some areas with clear weather conditions, you'll take all the light you can get. Being able to see better in front of you, off to the sides, and at farther distances can only help you.
ETA: I was thinking about this and I believe the real reason has to do with reducing the brightness of the light closest to you so that your eyes can interpret the light at a greater distance instead. I'd still prefer the option though.
