Export to Excel - Measure Name Displayed instead of Friendly Name

When exporting from a Table in Power BI to Excel, the measure name is returned in the Excel table column header, instead of the friendly name of the column the end user sees in the Power BI report.   However, if you export to csv, the friendly name is returned.  Any way the friendly name could be returned when exporting to Excel? Seems like this might be an oversight, since the measure isn't actually exported to the Excel table, just the value...

I am also having this issue. Using Power BI RS version May 22. Is there any resolution planned? CSV displays friendly name but Excel does not.
