If you want to see the discussion so far, and maybe make your wishes known, you can go to Issue 23451 - android - Google Music - Make Available offline - Save to External SD Card - Android - An Open Handset Alliance Project - Google Project Hosting

Thanks I appreciate that. I think this is why they want us all on Nexus devices. Galaxy Nexus doesn't have this issue.

I think they'd prefer for the various manufacturers to start doing the same (and some have, like HTC). So, it's not surprising to me that they wouldn't include additional support for SD cards in some of their apps, especially for something like this. Beyond system stability and disliking the partitioning (which they claim can be confusing to users, and given how many threads we get around here about the partitioning of Motorola's memory, it seems to be the case), one of the reasons mentioned previously for moving away from SD cards is the security of apps and media content from piracy. Whether you completely buy that or not is another story (because things can be removed and cracked from internal storage as well as SD cards), but it's a possible explanation given what they've said and done in recent years.
