Web Form and the "Download Form Field Data" action with .csv format

After creating a web form and uploading it to "Agreements" on my "Adobe Acrobat Home" page, when a recipient completes a form I can open it on the Home page and use "Download Form Field Data" in the "Actions" panel on the right, to download the data as a .csv file. Question: Is there an option available to change the format of this download action so that the form data is downloaded to a .txt or .fdf data file?

 

Comment: It seems shortsighted that Adobe limits this download action to .csv format when Acrobat's import methods cannot import .csv data files. I know that a script can be written to convert .csv to .txt, but that seems to unnecessarily complicate what shouldn't be complicated.
