Transfer Attributes tool lacking abilities

    The Transfer Attributes geoprocessing tool only accepts line feature classes as input for Source and Target.  I frequently have the need to transfer polygon attributes to address point features in batches on selected sets of points.  Currently, the only way to do this is to use the Spatial Adjustment > Attribute Transfer tool.  Which means 2 mouse clicks for each address point.  So my question, why does the tool only support line feature classes?  Can this tool be expanded to accept all feature classes as input?  Is there an alternative apart from the spatial adjustment attribute transfer tool I'm missing?  Esri please expand this tool to accept all feature classes in the next new release.
