Why ENUM don't have an ability to get DB value?

That would be nice to have something like status_original, when you have an enum on a field called “status” to have an ability to get original data, 'cause now when I call .status I have enum name. So, there is an example:

class Some < ActiveRecord
  enum :status, { cool: "There is really cold" }

record = Some.create

# BAD behaviour
record.status #=> "cool"

# GOOD behaviour
record.status #=> "There is really cold"
# OR
record.original_status #=> "There is really cold"

so, there were really many times when I need it and have to use workaround. I guess we must have it from the box
