The 'Merge' parcel editing tool in the Parcel Fabric should include an option to NOT create historical parcels when merging. There are many times in which I am doing corections or cleaning up an area where I dont want to save the history of my Merge because I'll simply have to go back in and delete those historical parcels later. Adding a simple checkbox option to not save the history would save quite a bit of time for me and I'm certain many other editors as well.
This idea has been merged with Added Functionality for the Merge Task in the Parcel Fabric.
