Allow editing of "Requested by" in the Approval email sent through "Start an approval" action

When building a list item approval Flow, when an approval email is sent to the approvers the "Requested by" at the top of the email is hard coded to the person who built the Flow and not the person who created the item. I would like to either change this to the "Created by" user for the list item requiring approval, or allow it to be edited to such. 

 

Approvers do not need to know who created the Approval Flow, they need to know who requires an approval. This hard coding of the Flow creator doesn't make sense in this approval case. 

 

Creating suggestion per Kris' (response on this post.

We need this functionaloty since Flow is not a "personal" tool anymore...

 

When you build an approval for example, it´s an organization tool and is based on sharepoint-access for the most so please add dynamic requester to approval-flows!
