+1 on that idea.

I had actually somehow believed that was already possible until I  
tried it a couple weeks ago and it didn't work!

I would think it possible, but at the least would require a new type  
of view - or perhaps the current view system (map only, of course)  
could have a special mode, triggered by a key maybe, allowing them to  
be replicated from (including delete info, etc ..)
