Desktop (10.1) Merge dialog simplification

    In 10.1 ArcGIS Desktop, when editing features using the Merge tool a dialog box opens listing the features that will be merged and letting the user select the attributes for the new feature.  Each feature also is suffixed parenthetically with the layer it is in.  Although, the Merge tool only works with features from the same layer.  So thre is a cluttering of the dialog with redunant information.  Please make the Merge dialog in 10.1 like the dialog in 10.0 that does not list layer for each feature, Or just list the layer at the top of the list box once. 
    Thanks much.
