Keep Symbology Linked to a layer file

    I use layer files alot.  Whenever we start a new project they are great to bring into a project so that the symbology is consistant between projects.  Unfortunatly, whenever we update a layer, we also have to reload the updated layer into our older map documents. 

    Whenever loading a layer file into a project, it would be nice if a dialog box asked a user "Do you want to update the symbology of this layer whenever the layer file is updated?"


    *note   I noticed that we now have layer packages in 10x.  In thery, I a layer package could be used for this situation.  However, layer packages store the data itself withn the package, which would be reundant if the data was already avalible on a network server.
