Change to wording in client view for signer delegation

When a client is signing their return, the third option is for signer delegation and the description of it indicates that they will be delegating the signature to partners or shareholders. We anticipate that many of our 1040 clients will want to use this feature in order to sign for their children’s returns or for their elderly parents for whom they have POA. Would it be possible to change the wording for this on 1040s so that it is more applicable to the 1040 signer? Also would it be possible to add a caveat somewhere that you should not be signing someone else’s return unless they are your minor child or you have power of attorney? Thanks for considering this request.
